The Story of Mankind (Illustrated)
First published in 1921 and awarded the first Newbery Medal of 1922, "The Story of Mankind" follows the history of western civilization from prehistoric times to the early 20th century. Van Loon both wrote and illustrated this book, which he wrote for his grandchildren, in such a way that children would be learning in an entertaining way. From the development of writing and art to the formation of religion and politics, Van Loon emphasizes the people and events central to the changes and achievements of human history. A remarkable, accurate, and enduring work of children's literature, "The Story of Mankind" is an engaging narration of the procession of events in world history.
