‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Timeline Activity Book
by Peter Goes
Age Range: 6-8
Timeline is an international best-seller introducing history as it travels the story of the world. Now, there is a companion activity book for children to enjoy from Belgium illustrator Peter Goes. From trilobites and ammonites, dinosaurs, meteorites, the great civilizations, kings and knights, discoveries and inventions there is plenty here to discover.
Goes’ artwork and activities cleverly draw unexpected parallels and connections. The idea for a history timeline was inspired by his own way of learning as a child “A timeline is a way to create order in a sometimes-chaotic string of events. It helps you see similarities, influences and coincidences.”
Here the reader can create their own journey through time with drawings, puzzles and designs – whether it is decorating the Berlin Wall with graffiti, drawing the route and means of transport for a round-the-world trip, designing a rocket or breaking the code to read the secret message of the Cold War Spy, there is so much here that will inspire any child and get them interested in history.
