How terrible is your life? Chances are, it could have been worse. There are many ways to learn about history, but this series takes one of the most interesting views: How awful life was for people living in different places and times throughout human history. Want to know how rough it was to be a Roman Soldier, or to be an American Colonist or Egyptian King? This series will tell you.
With hilarious and descriptive pictures and only a couple paragraphs per page, these books get a lot of information across in a very simple way. They're not easy books, but will hold a lot of appeal for young readers (think fourth grade reading level and up) who want to learn more about the world.
