Who Was? What Was?

Have you read them all?

The Petworth Library Children's Room has recently received a plethorea of titles from Penguin's Who Was? and What Was? historical series. This exciting series features biographies ranging from Johnny Appleseed to Steve Jobs and covers historical events ranging from Pompeii to Pearl Harbor. These detailed accounts include biographical data, timelines, illustrations and photos of archival material. Aside from being fun and easy to read, they contain a wealth of information and would be a great resource for a school project. I can't get enough of this series, and once you start reading, I know you'll also be hooked. 

Check out these titles and more that can be found in the Petworth Library Children's Room:
