george washington's world i Combiners! (september 2022)

Anmeldelser

A sort of world history for kids, from 1740-1800, set in the timeline of George Washington's life. I didn't expect much going into this Newbery Honor Book, written in 1941, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It ties world events together quite cleverly, and the narrative style is interesting and engaging. My 10-year-old son is interested in history and I think he'll love this one.

this book covers the world during the time period of Octavian/Augustus Caesear's world, (just as the title says).
So it includes Julius Caesar's relationship with Cleopatra. Then her relationship with Antony. The struggle Octavian had with Antony to follow in Julius's footsteps. The gods Roman's worshiped; and there were A LOT! The book covers: Virgil, Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, the Mayans, Lao Tzu, Confucius,and Buddha, Tiberius, and the German tribe that killed three legions of Romans. After that Augustus decided to leave the Germans to become civilized at their own pace. (they continued to fight among each other, but there is debate as to whether the first two world wars would have happened if they had become civilized under the Romans.) The book ends with the life and death of Jesus of Nazareth.
There are some interesting parts in the book and there are some very weird parts as well.
