2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, and this photo-filled book is perfect for teaching kids ages 6–9 about the conflict and its lasting impact. Entertaining and educating young readers through a combination of close-up images, trivia facts, quiz questions, and fascinating tidbits, it’s the ultimate guide for any kid who is hungry to learn more about military history.

When did World War II begin? How were people protected during an air raid? How did the Allies crack the enemy’s secret code? Find out the answers to these questions and more in DKfindout! World War II, which features photographs and illustrations of war machines, battlefields, and world leaders from throughout the span of this widespread conflict. Readers will learn about the rise of Nazi Germany, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and life during the war.

The DKfindout! series is one that kids will want to turn to again and again.
