It is clearly divided into established time periods to provide structure and cohesion. The 'date to remember' sections pinpoint crucial moments in history.

The book features a clear, concise text, full-colour illustrations and humorous drawings, which will help to engage even the most reluctant of readers. A complete glossary and index make this title ideal for use both at home and at school. It covers Key Stage 2 History and helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
