This highly eye-catching range has been designed specially for young independent readers aged between 6 and 8. "Perspectives" combines a real emphasis on developing research skills with a visually stunning design that will encourage readers to look at curriculum topics in a different way. Through the eyes of a child investigating the aspects of society that matter to them, this series takes a visual approach to the study of the important periods for Key Stage 2 history. Each book in this series looks at the period of history and focuses on all aspects of daily life such as childhood, work and religion through the eyes of someone examining the evidence. This title includes details of where and how these people or civilisations lived and asks the reader to imagine themselves in a particular time and era; aims to place emphasis on the readers' senses, for example 'what did a Greek market smell like?'; and adds context to books by explaining how we know about different aspects of the period.
