Reviews

KERANJIT

Absolutely Everything! A History of Earth, Dinosaurs, Robots, Rulers and Other Things Too Numerous to Mention...is a great book for any child or adult who asks themselves lots of questions about all of those subjects and others. Did you know that approximately 1,000 cities and settlements were found in the Indus Valley? Are there 20,000 different types of bees in existence today? Did you know one of he biggest Viking settlements in Europe was near Rouen? There are so many different topics covered in this book that you can find out the answers to these questions and lots more! This book is a wealth of information. I liked the foreword which explained why the author decided to write the book. The information is logically organised in chronological order. The style of writing is conversational and easy to understand. I like the mix of photographs and illustrations which are colourful. Each section has a time line which I found useful. My favourite part described how civilisation began. There are many links to the KS2 history curriculum: Pyramids in Egypt, The Shang Dynasty, Ancient Greece, The Mayans and so much more. I really enjoyed this book and think anyone who is curious, loves history and learning will thoroughly love this book. 336 pages / Ages 9+ / Reviewed by Keranjit Kaur, teacher.
