Chocolate

By Alex Woolf

  • Hardback
  • £12.99

There's much more to chocolate than just a tasty treat - it has triggered wars, kick-started industries and revolutionised diets.

Did you know that the chocolate bar you buy from the shop as a treat used to be a precious and exotic food that only aristocracy could afford? This book looks at the history of one of our favourite foods, from the ancient civilisations who made the first hot chocolate to today's global sweets industry.

Other topics covered are health aspects of chocolate, how it is produced, its chemical properties and how it is traded around the world.

With bright illustrations and amazing photographs, this is an ideal leisure read, but also perfect for coursework and presentations for key stage 2 readers.

Children of the Holocaust

Alex Woolf
Authors:
Alex Woolf

The Holocaust is one of the most shocking events of the 20th century and one that continues to resonate today. Its Nazi perpetrators showed no mercy, not even to children and perhaps, as a result, it is often the experiences of the children of this era that speak to us most strongly. This moving and important book explores what happened to children during the Holocaust, from the early persecution of the Jews to the 'final solution'. It also considers the experiences of those who escaped or hid, and those who survived. As the Holocaust moves further away from us in history, it is important to keep it in the consciousness of the next generation. By using the experiences of children, this book is a powerful way to engage the attention and sympathy of young people today.
