Combines photographs and people's memories to help young children explore recent changes in British history
Explore changes in recent history through people's memories, and personal and archive photographs.
Fashions changes all the time but what we wore can tell us a lot about the times we lived in. From clothes rationing, making do and mending to 1990s fashion, this book gives young children access to people's memories alongside photographs to help them build up a picture of the past.
This book is part of the 'Tell me what you remember' series, which explores changes in living memory through photographs and anecdotes. It is a perfect teaching tool for KS1 or for children up to age 7.
