    One thought on “13 Photos Children Should Know”

    1. I love the idea of this book (exploring history through images). I just wish there had been more coherence from one picture to the next. And there were a couple of really famous shots that were glaringly absent. I also would have liked a bit more realness/depth in the description of events. Kids can take it!It does look great though, and is worth a look.

    2. This is a great idea to teach children about history, but this one is a miss. There were many important photographs that were left out and the format of the book was extremely chaotic.
