Childhood looks at the very different ways in which children have lived at times in the past and in some places still today. In the early 1800s one in five children died before the age of one. In the past only wealthy children went to school. Even today many millions of children can’t go to school. Why? This book is as rich, varied and enjoyable as childhood. At a deeper level it encourages children to reflect on different ways they and others experience life.
