What if you could look back in time and meet everyday children just like you, but from a totally different world?
How We Lived Long Ago is an amazing window into history through the lives of children from the Dark Ages to the dawn of the Industrial Age. It shows the clothes they wore, the food they ate, the games they played, and the amazing worlds they lived in.
Each section opens with a new child introducing themselves to the reader in a stunning illustrated double-page scene. Behind them, the reader can see the child’s environment. This is followed by a fact-filled spread explaining details of the scene, allowing readers to see their tools they used, the toys they loved, the food they ate, and much more.
Join them in a Maori village, explore a Chinese town, and race with them on horseback across the Incan empire. How We Lived Long Ago is an unforgettable journey back in time and eagerly anticipated follow-up to the popular How We Lived in Ancient Times title.
