History Pictures for a Living Education is a unique series designed to bring history to life for students and young people studying the events of the past. Brought to you exclusively by Charlotte Mason Beehive these books are largely based off Black’s History Pictures, a series published by A. & C. Black in the early twentieth century, which were suggested as a suitable resource by Miss Charlotte Mason of the P.N.E.U. (Parents’ National Educational Union) in the programmes she sent out to home schoolrooms at that time.

Designed to enliven and enhance the quest for historical knowledge in the home schoolroom, these books are the perfect companion to history readers such as Our Island Story, by H. E. Marshall, or A History of England, H. O. Arnold-Forster, and can be used by students of all ages and forms studying British History.

Printed on 200 gsm glossy paper, the book is spiral bound for ease of use, all pictures are clearly labelled, and most include captions to provide context and continuity throughout.
