Although this is a children's book to get a glimpse in history, it is equally interseting for adults also. The book has beautiful pictures to take the reader to the time and the period that it is described in different chapters. It is an useful and informative collection of the history since the begining of the world civilization since 3500 BC to the present days.
The book extensively covers all the civilizations that existed in ancient times throughout the world.
The foreword by Leonard Cottrell is indeed intriguing.
