Did you know that historians think that in ancient Egypt children under six often went naked? You can learn about this in A A Child Through Time: The Book Of Children's History written by Philip Wilkinson and illustrated by Steve Noon. This book lets you see how children lived all over the world and in different time periods. Some of the children are real and some of them were created based on how archeologists and historians think a kid would have lived.
You can read about Taya, an eleven-year-old girl who might have lived 17,000 years ago. You can read about John, a twelve-year-old cabin boy — on a pirate ship! A real life person you can read about is Ruby Bridges, who was part of the civil rights movement in the 1960s. You can even learn about people in this century, like Josh Cathcart, the first kid to get a bionic hand.
The photos and illustrations are great and really help you visualize how kids lived throughout history. (This book does not have a picture for a child under six in ancient Egypt.)
