Timeline: A Visual History of Our World by Peter Goes.

timelineTimeline: A Visual History of Our World by Peter Goes. Pub. Gecko Press, 2015.

If you haven’t caught up with this outstanding book yet get to it now. Every school and library in the land should have more than one copy and it would be great for the home that has children.

Why do I say this? Because it is a brief and historically accurate and thought provoking book that is big, easy to read that charts the history of Humankind from the Big Bang and the beginning of life right through  to the 2010’s and the rise of ISIS, Charlie Hebdo and refugees crossing into Europe.

Each Historical period is illustrated in a two page spread with pen and ink drawings suitably coloured  to create realistic effect. Into the illustrations are put interesting and important historical facts, happenings, artistic and social developments. From the dinosaurs to the Industrial Revolution to the Space Race from Beethoven and Mozart to the Beatles and to the first album by AC/DC in 1975.

All of that you say? Yes and I have left heaps out. Get it and see cause it is for everybody.
