Absolutely Everything!: A History of Earth, Dinosaurs, Rulers, Robots and Other Things Too Numerous to Mention
How was our universe made from a tiny speck of energy? Where did the first trees, plants, animals and humans come from? What happened to the dinosaurs? What was so miserable about medieval times? How were railroads and electricity invented? What are the perils of global warming?
From the Neanderthals to the Wright Brothers, from the Silk Trade to the Industrial Revolution, from dinosaurs to plastic, embark on an entertaining journey across millennia and continents. With photos, illustrations, timelines and maps in every chapter, there is no better way to understand the earth’s entire history than with this captivating book by Christopher Lloyd, author of the bestselling What on Earth Happened.
I love the illustrations and the color coding of the time periods. The information is presented in a way so those aged nine and up can understand it easily. There are dinosaurs, rulers, the development of civilizations, and so much more.
This is a great book to get into the hands of children so they can absorb the information. I believe it's important for our future to learn from our past, so I'm a huge fan of this one. I love the whole layout and the educational value of it.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to children who are interested in history and have a curious mind.
