A couple of weeks ago, I shared with you a great range of new pre school books from DK that have really engaged Little Man and he continues to ask to read them with me daily. So today I thought it would be great to share some other non-fiction titles from DK’s range for older children and offer them as a prize, too.
On arriving, it was a popular package…
Both of the children were so excited to receive their new books, diving straight into them.
A little glimpse inside for you….
More details about each of the books we were sent…
What Happened When in the World
History as you’ve never seen it before, walk through the past and find out what happened when
Step into What Happened When in the World, a unique historical atlas for kids and discover the global events that shaped our world.
Watch the key moments in our history unravel on the page in front of you through colourful, illustrated 3D maps. Follow the devastating spread of the black death through Europe, the Roman Empire’s expansion to North Africa and the Middle East, and the impact of world war II on the globe.
What Happened When in the World reveals our history through 60 stunning, specially commissioned historical maps which chart the migration of humans, the spread of the black death, D-day landings and much more.
As it claims, this is a unique book as it walks us through key events and moments in history, by taking us around the globe and sharing happenings from across the world. There is so much to take in on each page, with a huge variety of topics covered. We’ve been dipping into this one, page by page, and I can see it being a brilliant book to use and refer to over the next few years as Boo studies different periods of history.

This one is a book for all ages, I think. Little Man at 3, adores looking through it, and then at the other end of the scale, the Husband is very keen to read it with him each evening! Our boy is Star Wars obsessed, so when this arrived he was beyond happy. He’s been showing it to every single person who visits the house and flicks through it, asking to be read to, on and off all day. It’s packed with illustrations and information, and I can see any Star Wars fan loving this.
