An insight into teaching
by Aaron Wilkes


  • "This is a fabulous, child-friendly history book. It is my 11-yr old's school history text book and she loves it so much that I bought her a copy of her own and intend to build up the range for her. The facts are all in there but presented in a fun, light-hearted manner with great diagrams - the gruesome after-effects of the beauty treatments of the day are a particular favourite!"

    Amazon review, 15 Jan 2008 - on Renaissance, Revolution and Reformation - Student Book

  • "The perfect resource to hook the imagination, with superb question or titles within each chapter." "Evokes laughter, tears and intrigue. The best History textbook I have seen in thirty years."

    John Perkins, Head of History, Campion School, Bugbrooke, Northants

  • "One of the best laid out history books for a long time. Well resourced and lovely pictures. It is easy to read and most pupils would enjoy using it. The bite size bits of information focuses on the most important facts in history. The layout relates easily to today making the book understandable and relevant to young people today, which also clearly meets the needs of all pupils. The assessment sections are excellent. Would recommend this as a good resource for schools to have."
