Illustrated Who Was Series (Set Of 10 Volumes) (Paperback) Price: Rs.1188

Illustrated Who Was Series (Set Of 10 Volumes) contains a set of 10 volumes giving the life sketches of 10 famous historical personalities.

Summary Of The Book

Illustrated Who Was Series (Set Of 10 Volumes) is part of a series of books that provide details about the life history of famous people through the ages. This collection contains 10 volumes, with each part covering one historical personality.

Children normally find any kind of learning to be boring, especially when it comes to learning about important historical personalities. This series aims to make the process of learning engaging and interesting. The style in which the text has been presented makes the content interesting to read, and it is accompanied by illustrations on each page as well.

This set of 10 volumes has books titled Who Was Abraham Lincoln?, Who Was Charles Darwin?, Who Was Albert Einstein?, Who Was Anne Frank?, Who Was Leonardo Da Vinci?, Who Was Marco Polo?, Who Was Queen Elizabeth?, Who Was Thomas Alva Edison?, Who Was Walt Disney?, and Who Was William Shakespeare?

The books concentrate on pertinent facts about each personality’s life that are likely to appeal to young children. In the life of Lincoln, his efforts to abolish slavery, the resulting civil war, and his leadership through the war are explained, while his unusual height even at a young age is also highlighted.

Leonardo Da Vinci’s multi talented personality is detailed. The book on Marco Polo, in addition to explaining how he set out on his first long journey at sea when he was just seventeen, also explains how he learnt all about different currencies and measurements before setting out on his voyage.

Charles Darwin’s aversion to school, his unusual experiments that irritated his teachers, and his voyage on the Beagle together make his story interesting for children. Similarly, the books sketch interesting details about these personalities in a way that children can identify with.
Illustrated Who Was Series (Set Of 10 Volumes) is meant for young children who are just starting to move beyond picture books and small one or two page stories.

With text that is easy to understand, content that is very interesting, and with lots of illustrations, these books are not only fun for kids to read, but are also educational and inspiring.

One of a very good series of books!

Purchased as a birthday present for a 9 year old girl, this particular biography was chosen because Shakespeare was involved in a Doctor Who episode! The book did a wonderful job of adding reality to the fictional depiction used in the show -- and helped broaden her interest to the works of Shakespeare as well as making him a "real" person. The whole series of biographies was new to me, but it won't be the last purchase from the series I make. I would recommend this to any parent who children have an interest in biographies, history or any relevant person. It may not turn out to b... ()

Great Book!!!

I love this book!
I learned who Charles Darwin was. He created the theory of evolution with his discoveries. He was a very seasick passenger who sailed around the world. He loved animals. Read this great book about this great man to learn more about him. This is the best "Who Was" book ever. He is the best scientist of his time. Please buy this book. It is one of the best. You will never stop reading till the end of this book then you read it again. It also has great pictures too! I loved it. You will love it too!

Now I love science and I learned about the changing of animals and humans. I learned a lot! He found a lot of stuff. He was friends with Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker, Thomas Henry Huxley, and Sir Charles Lyell. I also love other "Who Was" books. It makes me feel like I'm there. Darwin wrote two books.

Who Was Marco Polo?

I volunteer through a pen pal service to get and discuss books with fifth graders. This is the biography that my pen pal chose. I must say, I found this book to be really well-written for the age group. While obviously it was not particularly enlightening reading for myself, I was surprised by just how much information was crammed into the compact little book. It also seemed very interactive with the special sections. I was particularly impressed by the "What life would be like if you were a..." sections. I found them engrossing and could very well encourage to children to underst... ()

Great for kids!

This was purchased for a very inquisitive 11 year old, and I must say, I have NEVER known him to literally devour any book so raptly. He read the entire book over the course of two days, even taking time during class to read it (with his teacher's OK!). This was my first experience with this series of books --- but it won't be my last. I can't speak for every kid -- but I think this series might be well worth at least TRYING for any child looking to learn about a particular person or even subject -- it will make a good lead-in.....

Who Was Anne Frank?

I like the "Who Was..." biography series for middle readers. At 100 pages and with plenty of line-drawn illustrations and large type it is a good 3rd grade reading level that doesn't feel babyish for older kids. This one has just the right amount of information to give kids a look into... (View complete review)
