Win DK Kids Books!

A couple of weeks ago, I shared with you a great range of new pre school books from DK that have really engaged Little Man and he continues to ask to read them with me daily. So today I thought it would be great to share some other non-fiction titles from DK’s range for older children and offer them as a prize, too.

On arriving, it was a popular package…

Reading DK non fiction books

Both of the children were so excited to receive their new books, diving straight into them.

A little glimpse inside for you….

What Happened When in the World

What Happened When in the World

History as you’ve never seen it before, walk through the past and find out what happened when

Step into What Happened When in the World, a unique historical atlas for kids and discover the global events that shaped our world.

Watch the key moments in our history unravel on the page in front of you through colourful, illustrated 3D maps. Follow the devastating spread of the black death through Europe, the Roman Empire’s expansion to North Africa and the Middle East, and the impact of world war II on the globe.

What Happened When in the World reveals our history through 60 stunning, specially commissioned historical maps which chart the migration of humans, the spread of the black death, D-day landings and much more.

As it claims, this is a unique book as it walks us through key events and moments in history, by taking us around the globe and sharing happenings from across the world. There is so much to take in on each page, with a huge variety of topics covered. We’ve been dipping into this one, page by page, and I can see it being a brilliant book to use and refer to over the next few years as Boo studies different periods of history.

Star Wars™: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know is crammed with weird and wonderful Star Wars trivia, strange-but-true facts and fascinating “Did you know?” Q&As.

Our boy is Star Wars obsessed, so when this arrived he was beyond happy. He’s been showing it to every single person who visits the house and flicks through it, asking to be read to, on and off all day. It’s packed with illustrations and information, and I can see any Star Wars fan loving this.

  2. What Happened When in the World. My children love finding out stuff about our past so I think they would love this book.

  3. my family would love the book ‘What happened in the world’. I love teaching them all about history and we try and then make costumes to fit in with that era.

  4. The Science or History books appeal most but any good quality book is a must for children growing up, I’m a bit anti e-readers as I love books so much and think for kids it just has to be the real thing.

  5. I love the ‘what happened when in the world’ book as this would be fab for homework, but the star wars one would be so good for my sons who LOVE star wars, and they would enjoy it a lot!

  6. Love the What Happened When in the World book, also any of their science based books…oh and geographical ones too!

  7. I like to look of the What happened when in the World book because my 9 year old son loves history and is always digging around in the earth trying to find artifacts.He found some old Victorian bottles recently!

  8. As a keen historian the What Happened When in the World but I think my big crazy 3 year old would love the book on bugs.

  9. What Happened When in the World sounds great – I love British history, but can never quite get my head around the timelines of other nations’ events compared to ours.

  10. ‘What Happened When in the World’ love anything to do with history, I’d love this book more than my daughter!

  11. Cara Bemrose-williams

    The ultimate factivity book of bugs looks awesome. My son loves bugs and non-fiction so he’d be very excited to read that!

  12. Artie would LOVE the Star Wars one and Tori is getting in to her history so she’s love the what happened when one. I love non-fiction kids’ books – they’re so much more engaging than dry grown up ones!

  13. I homeschool my 10 year old due to unavailability of local school places so its a toss up between bugs and what happened when in the world. On balance I’d opt for the latter. Great prizes!

  14. Charmian Filewood

    Star Wars™: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know appeals, especially with the new Star Wars coming out soon!!

  15. The Utterly Amazing Human Body looks fab but the children also love books with maps and interesting facts about other countries.
