Description

This book is backwards! It starts at the end, ends at the beginning and travels back in history to show you what life was like before major inventions and discoveries. Step into a time before smartphones, television, cars or even the toilet; then learn about the major invention or discovery that changed the world.

Explore bright, detailed, humorous scenes from different eras that will spark discussion and make you think about what life was like in history. Learn about the clever inventors, the accidental discoveries and how people managed without the everyday things that we take for granted. Opening from the left-hand edge, this book's ‘backwards’ format is fun and unique.

  • Detailed, humorous scenes of different eras to explore 
  • Fun 'backwards' format
  • Key topics of science, technology and inventions
