Each title guides the reader through time, showing important discoveries and changes that have resulted in the world as we know it today. When did people start to sing and dance? Where do nursery rhymes come from? How will we make music in the future? These questions and many others are answered in Song & Dance. What were the first schools like? How did children write things down? What was a ragged school? What was a hornbook? These questions and many others are answered in Going to School.
