Many diseases that can now be cured with medicines were killers over 100 years ago. New medicines, cleaner water, and healthier food have made growing up less risky than it used to be in many countries.

This series takes a look at how life as a child has dramatically changed through the ages, from ancient times to the modern day. Each title takes an aspect of life to which all children can relate, such as school, illness and family, in order to examine how children have been treated throughout history. These books also include real-life photos and first hand accounts so that readers can relate the content to their own lives.

Suitable for 12-16 year olds.
