We received this book to give an honest review.
I think K was really impressed with this book as he was very interested in the pictures and what the people were eating. He found it very cool that no one drank water because he doesn't like to drink water. Which I had to explain that sometimes there were nasty things in the water that could make people sick as we discussed how people threw out their waste and what not just into the streets.
After reading the book and learning different things especially what people wore he believes he would not like to live back then as it doesn't seem fun and it seems hot.
We even get to learn about different jobs and how much you could earn with those jobs.
I have to say I really like learning a lot of interesting things with this book as I felt I learned and I am sure K learned something new.
