1066 - A Big Story for Little Historians: Teacher's Book
Pre-publication discount available - for a few weeks only!
History - or should we say Hi-story? - is a great way to involve, excite and fire the imaginations of all children. Based on facts, the non-fiction oriented will love them. But so will every child who loves stories. In that familiar form, imagination is still key, especially linking the verbal and visual imagination. The Big Stories for Little Historians series builds on this situation combining the stories of history simply and elegantly told with larger than life illustrations like this one of William landing at Pevensey Bay.
The 1066 book is a wonderful book about a different time - almost like a different world even though the story is about England. Read about the Vikings, the Saxons and the Normans battling it out for the future of England! Readers are invited to check out the soldiers, the rival Kings and the different ways of life. To imagine themselves in the battles and which side would they be on? For more details on the picture book see here - discounted classroom sets are available on this page and on the linked page.
