5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, brilliant series
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on October 27, 2020
These are great super well-presented books that are excellent for children of all ages and entertaining for adults as well. Our 10-year old daughter has a passion for famous historical characters. And she prefers to read about a wide range of them and through this get to know about different historic era’s as well. She has read a lot about the obvious female heroes like Florence Nightingale, Frida Kahlo, Madame Curie ect. However she really likes to know more about other people that she has heard of. So this range of books with its wide selection of topics is great, she has already the version abbot Leonardo DaVinci, Neil Armstrong, Walt Disney and Abraham Lincoln.

But of course its is mostly about the adorable cartoon style nature of these little books and how the relative simplicity of the storylines perfectly captures the essence of the topic. Simply brilliant. The 40-page book is very colourful and comes with a durable hard cover. For now our daughter has read it but she is also reading it to her younger brother. And invariably its leads to little discussions and questions about the topics afterward, which is invaluable. Like in most modern cartoon movies, these books are full moralising themes and the storylines mostly centre around these. In the George Washington book it is all about leadership, endurance and pioneering in new directions.

We’re clearly big fans of the series , our little precious collection is growing and we look forward to a few more of these soon.

Disclaimer: I’ve written the same review to almost all the books on this series. My daughter and son loves them.

Been purchasing the whole series for a few months now. Super easy readings for kids, even for the 20-min trip between house and school. Interesting lives, and you can later discuss the story with the kids. I have found that most of them (stories) stick to their minds, even recalling full names and events a few weeks/months later.
