Synopsis

Some of the world's most renowned pictures are also the most exciting to view and discuss. From Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon to the fall of the Berlin Wall; Lindbergh's historic landing in Paris to Nelson Mandela's release from prison; portraits of Albert Einstein, Princess Diana and the Beatles; the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics and the devastating oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico-these and other history-making photographs are presented in double-page spreads that offer stunning reproductions of the images themselves, helpful background information on the events and people they portray, and perspectives on the circumstances that inspired them. Paging through these photographs, children will learn not only about people and events that changed the world, but how photographs preserve and help us understand these important moments.
