    From the time Alexandrina Victoria was born, people said she looked like a queen. Indeed, when she was crowned Queen of England at the age of 18, she was ready. She entered into her rule not with pride or arrogance, but simplicity and honesty. During her 64 year reign, she raised nine children and led Great Britain during an unforgettable era. 261 pgs, pb.

    This unabridged reproduction of the 1905 edition provides children with an extensive, yet engaging history of England from Roman times through the reign of Queen Victoria. There are over a hundred chapters, although each one is only several pages long. Chapters usually focus on a monarch or a specific event (usually a battle) under the reign of the monarch. Although this 654-pg to me looks intimidating at first glance, the writing is lively and descriptive with lots of dialogue. Lifelike black-and-white full-page illustrations are scattered throughout the book. By H.E. Marshall, pb. - Jess

      This very detailed book starts off by getting the reader to look around them and think about how far technology has brought us in how comfortably we live. Today, we take running water and electricity for granted. Buildings were adapted for safety and a need to house the population. Illustrations and a very well-written text walk you through various man-made structures. Several pages even fold out to show a larger illustration. Some notable buildings include the Pyramid of Djoser in Egypt, various temples of Greece, the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Notre Dame in Paris, the Forbidden City in Beijing and lots more. You don’t just read about the architecture, you learn about the individual artisans who worked together, who paid for the structures, and problems that arose during construction. There is so much historical information, you could add this to about any world history curriculum or even create an original unit study around this beautiful hardcover book! Author Patrick Dillon, illustrated by Stephen Biesty. Hc, 10” x 11.5”, 95pp. ~ Sara

    This beautifully-illustrated, softcover book tells the true story of Martha Ann. After a childhood in slavery, Martha Ann's freedom was bought and she moved to a settlement in Liberia that was protected by England under Queen Victoria's rule. Martha Ann dreamed of visiting the queen to thank her for the queen's protection, though many laughed at the idea. She worked to save her money in order to make a beautiful quilt for the queen. Will she realize her dream? - Laura
