The Museum shop carries a small selection of children’s books directly related to a child’s visit to the Museum. They are wonderfully educational souvenirs of your visit and also make good presents for Christmas or birthday: from parents and grandparents, and aunties and uncles too.
The “You Wouldn’t Want to Be……” books are just the right mixture of facts and fun. They feature full-colour illustrations which combine humour and accurate technical detail.
You wouldn’t want to a Victorian servant £6.99 by Fiona Macdonald.
This book warns young readers to get ready… as a 12-year-old girl living in Britain in the 1880s, you are about to start work for a wealthy family. You will be busy all day long as a Victorian servant. The humorous illustrations make learning fun, and encourage young readers to engage with the central servant character.
The Volunteers at the Museum Shop offer an old fashioned Mail Order service. You identify the book or item that you want, we tell you the total cost including postage, you send us the money and we then post it to you.
