My father has always been interested in genealogy so I understood family trees from a very young age. It was fun to learn about who my ancestors were and what their lives were like. With Famous Family Trees, your child can learn about people like Ghengis Khan, Cleopatra, Shakespeare, the Brontes and more. At the beginning of the book, your child will learn how to use the book and what family trees are. There are 30 different family trees your child can learn more about.
Then, each famous person has their own section with a picture of their family tree and who is part of it. But, more than that the book also tells you a bit about the time period they lived in and what their lives might have been like. This is an awesome book for anyone who wants their child to understand more about what family trees are or learn more about history. Ages 7-70.
