Spotlight on a Non-fiction Juvenile Series

You Wouldn't Want to Be a...!

History has never been so fascinating... or so gross!
Take a step back into the past... as a samurai, a Viking explorer, a slave in ancient Greece, a medieval knight or an American pioneer (among other roles) and learn of the hardships and/or unlucky fates they faced. This is an entertaining series that offers information about the past, exploring different cultures, places and time periods all over the world, from ancient Egypt to the Wild West. Life wasn’t pretty for many and this series shares some insight! The illustrations are attention grabbing and there is humor too. It’s a great non-fiction series for children, from grade school to young adult.
