Queen Elizabeth II and Her Family: The Incredible Life of the Princess Who Became a Beloved Queen by D.K. Publishing
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Queen Elizabeth II and her Family: The Incredible Life of the Princess Who Became a Beloved Queen.
This is a non-fiction children’s book recommended for readers aged around 7-9 years. Each page has lovely colourful photos that depict The Queen and members of her family.
The book features, the early years of The Queen, her background, castles and palaces that she lived in, her hobbies and pastimes. There are sections about her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as information on some of her royal duties. The book ends with photos of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations, a timeline of events in her lifetime and a section about the new King Charles.
This works well as a summary of The Queen’s life for young readers who are beginning to learn about The Royal Family. It would also make a good souvenir gift for children.
