About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
This book was revised in the 50's and goes from William I to Elizabeth II, making it current. Though, the poem about Queen Elizabeth is quite short and is more of an ending poem to the whole book.
From an American standpoint, I call this book a good supplement. Looking at each poem individually, it doesn't give quite enough information to fully make sense unless you have a decent background of the British Kings and Queens. If your child (or parents too) have an interest in British history, I recommend getting this book together with Our Island Story by H.E. Marshall or having online resources at the ready.
For years I have searched for this book to no avail. Now, updated and reprinted, it is available through Amazon. I bought a bunch of them as presents and I've never heard more enthusiastic thank-you's. --
