Something Highly Entertaining- Historic World Events
« on: January 30, 2008, 09:06:33 PM »
I recently went to the library awhile ago for research on a Sociology essay and randomly found myself to have wandered into the children's section. However my litheness proved to have its rewards, for as I was passing down an aisle I noticed this HUGE book sticking out of the bookcase and I took it out and opened it only to find two enormous pages on the Russian Revolution! Anyways I immediately checked it out and scanned the pages for everyone's viewing pleasure. I especially like the illustrations. The pages were so big I later had to paste them together  in photoshop, but here you all are:

The pages:

 

Some close ups:





Anyways hope you all find them equally entertaining as I did, this book does have some rather mature content in it for children, but nonetheless its the Romanovs so who cares. I'm in a huge rush right now so if this thread is entirely inappropriate I leave it to Laura Mabee and the Administrators to merge it or move it.

Thanks for posting that!  I love it!  My favorite part is, of course, OTMA!  :D

 Interesting

I like to look for these myself always have. Historically who ever did the depiction of the cellar has 1 too many women and not enough men.

Really? I see Nicholas, Aleksey, Botkin, and the other man whose name I can't remember right now. I don't think there was another male. They do have an extra female, though.

Men in the Ipatiev House Cellar that night:

Nicholas Alexandrovich
Alexei Nicholaievich
Eugene Botkin
Ivan Kharitonov
Alexei Trupp

They are missing one man, but have an extra female. Anyways things like this are always prone to historical errors unfortunately...

Alexei or Aloizy Trupp?-I think I have read somewhere it is not Alexei Trupp, his name was Aloizy, or something like that?
Sorry my bad spelling!

Dear nena,

You are correct, Alexei Yegorovich Trupp was also known by the name: Aloizii.

Well done!

Americans! The people reading this are the future workers, taxpayers, and leaders of the Republic!

It's time to worry when the stuff students read looks like it was written by a grade school student.

Actually, it is.....it's called "Great Events That Changed The World: History as immediate as the present". Needless to say it's a kids book, a very large kid's book, but nonethless one for children. I honestly think it's perfect for teaching "future Republicans" and any other child, I mean first of all they wouldn't care about any of this in the first place, but the small but detailed text and great illustrations make it entertaining.

Anyways, you're absolutely welcome to all who thought this to be of interest, I loved it so I knew you might feel the same!!!

These things gets children started, does it not? Simple stories and   nice pictures.  I remember reading such things whenm I was a kid [much longer ago than I care to admit]  giving me the story of the USA, or the  Kings of England. Both were full of shallow propaganda, but they  got my attention. Which, incidentally has lead to my library of past-counting books.
 Whatever it takes to get a child interested in reading is a fine tool, in my opinion. Reading leads to questions. Questions lead to thought progression.  It is sadly obvious that many educators  ignore that for more tactile and "useful" skills.
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..
