I’m a big fan of the Great Lives in Graphics series and have reviewed a few of these books. I have also been sent two new books, Shakespeare and Einstein to review and here is my honest opinion of them.
‘Great Lives in Graphics’ reimagines the lives of extraordinary people in vivid technicolour, presenting 250+ fascinating facts in a new and exciting way. You may already know that William Shakespeare was a playwright, but did you know he learned nothing but Latin at school? Or that he couldn’t even spell his own name? This graphic retelling of Will’s story gives children a visual snapshot of his life and the world he grew up in, while educating them on everything from Elizabethan theatre to the power of words. This book is aimed at children aged 8 to 12.
Most children get to learn about the bard William Shakespeare while at school. I think it’s fair to say most kids find it boring. The stories he told are amazing, but sometimes it’s just hard to get your head around his life story. Now, your children can find all the information they need in this wonderfully graphic book. With the lovely illustrations and charts, it makes learning easy and fun.
My 11 Year old son had to do a poster all about Shakespeare’s life and he found this book really useful and inspiring.
You can purchase this book from most good bookshops, including my own bookshop ‘Raisiebay’ on Bookshop.org.
‘Great Lives in Graphics’ reimagines the lives of extraordinary people in vivid technicolour, presenting 250+ fascinating facts in a new and exciting way. You may already know that Albert Einstein was a scientist, but did you know he never wore socks? Or that he had a violin named Lina? This graphic retelling of Albert’s story gives children a visual snapshot of his life and the world he grew up in, while educating them on everything from how gravity works to the importance of creative thinking. This book is aimed at children aged 8 to 12.
Albert Einstein was one of the greatest scientists of all time and in this book children can learn all about his life and his works. Each page is full of colourful graphics that will entice any child in to learn more about the man and his scientific findings. To quote the great man himself
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not stop questioning.Einstein
If you would like to add this book to your child’s collection you can purchase from any good bookshop. You can also buy from my book shop.
Have you tried any of the Great Lives in Graphics books? They really are quite addictive and I have to admit, I’ve learned quite a lot myself from them.
