About You Rule!: Create Your Own CountryTitle: You Rule!: Create Your Own Country | Authors: Scott Forbes & Emma Laura Jones | Publication Date: September, 2015 | Publisher: Lonely Planet Kids | Pages: 96 | Recommended Ages: 8+ Description: Think you can run a nation? You Rule!: Create Your Own Country by Scott Forbes and Emma Laura Jones shows ambitious young leaders (ages 8+) how to create a new nation completely from scratch. Decide on laws, establish borders, design a flag, gain citizen support and more. Be king, queen, chief, emperor, president or dictator – you decide, because right here, right now, you rule!
I was amazed by this book it was the absolute perfect blend of history with child interest factors. The book teaches children history, but it is sneaky about it. The reader is learning history as he or she reads, but the reader is not really aware that they are learning history because it is not a dry textbook, but instead filled with interesting facts.
The book takes the view point of teaching the reader how to rule their own kingdom whether their kingdom is their bedroom, house, or their own country. It then relates history to the decision that the reader would need to make about his or her kingdom. It draws its histories from many cultures not just America or Europe, but from the entire world.
This book is truly the perfect book to give to a child to get him or her interested in history. The book is perfect for getting a child to develop an interest in history because lets face it the book is interesting and fun not dry and boring like most history books.
