Presented by award-winning children's writer Michael Morpurgo, this genuinely ground-breaking history of British childhood from the year 1000 to the present explores, through a wide and colourful range of primary sources, how the idea of childhood has been constantly reinvented down through the centuries, and why the role of children in society continues to obsess us today.

Fascinating and thought-provoking, this audiobook will appeal to parents, grandparents, and anyone who has ever been a child. Download and start listening now!

    " Fascinating and well-researched. I especially liked how it made room for childhoods of various classes, not only dwelling on the very rich, or the very poor. "

    " This is the book from the Radio 4 series on the history of childhood. It is an excellent overview with lots of narrative and style. A great book for anyone wanting to think about childhood today. "

    " Excellent overview of childhood through the years. I found the first few chapters a bit hard going but once I got to the 1800's I couldn't put it down. Totally Absorbing and left me wanting to learn more. Highly recommended. "
