Explore the world from the beginning of time until the present, in this amazing, over-sized timeline book that brings history to life
Created in association with the American Museum of Natural History, the timeline is uniquely broken out into 12 sections, including by subject areas (such as sea, land) and continents, as well as by date, with over 1,000 pictures and captions. From the rise of the dinosaur to the creation of the smart phone, the nearly six-foot-long timeline allows you to compare events across the world at any given moment in time. An easy-to-read chronicle, written in the form of newspaper articles, highlights key moments from history, such as the rise and fall of Rome and the invention of the steam engine. Other features include a page of letters to the editor, a fifty-question quiz, and a pocket magnifier to make it easier to explore all the timeline's details. Perfect for 6-14 year olds, and history buffs of any age.
