For many young people, their school days were not just scary. They were terrible, cruel, and often painful. Some pupils still say they hate learning at school. But if they could swap places with someone from the past, they would see that school today is not quite so bad after all!

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.
