Designed to bring history to life for students and young people studying the events of the past History Pictures for a Living Education is brought to you exclusively by Charlotte Mason Beehive. These books are largely based on Black’s History Pictures, a series published by A. & C. Black in the early twentieth century. An edition of Black’s History Pictures was recommended as a suitable resource for young students of history by Miss Charlotte Mason of the Parents’ National Education Union.

Although especially arranged to accompany the reading of living history texts, this book can be used by students of all ages, forms, and educational philosophies studying British History, and makes an excellent companion to history readers such as Our Island Story, by H. E. Marshall, or A History of England, by H. O. Arnold-Forster.

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.
