About The Usborne Time Traveler
Discover what life was really like in this action-packed adventure through history. Visit a castle during the Crusades, meet a ferocious band of Viking raiders, explore Rome when the Roman empire was at its height and take a trip down the Nile at a time when pharaohs ruled Egypt. Informative and amusing, this fully illustrated book contains four updated Usborne classics: Knights & Castles, Viking Raiders, Rome & Romans, Pharaohs & Pyramids.
The Usborne Time Traveler book is a hard covered book that covers four historical civilizations, including Knights and Castles, Viking Raiders, Rome and Romans, and Pharaohs and Pyramids. It introduces the reader to a family who lived during each time period. To get to the time period, the reader has to put their time helmet on. For each time period, the book covers:
- What people wore and ate
- What the towns or cities were like
- Waterways, housing materials, and weaponry used
- What the civilizations were/are famous for
- What family units looked like
- What children did for schooling
The book is colorfully illustrated in a cartoonish manner. There is a LOT of information covered in each section, but it is presented in an understandable and easy to read way. If the same information were presented in text book format, it would be overwhelming for a young child. The cartoon like illustrations and right colors draw the kids right in, and they are eager to learn more. My daughter loved this book.
