Victoria : Portrait of a Queen by Catherine Reef - ESSENTIAL

Reef, Catherine Victoria : Portrait of a Queen NON FICTION 246 pgs.Clarion Books (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) 2017. Content: G.   

Reigning for over 60 years, Queen VIctoria was one of England’s longest serving rulers.  She ascended to the throne barely old enough to not require a regent, she married young, and had 9 children.   So much changed happened during her reign that it is called the Victorian Era.  

This beautiful biography of Queen Victoria is accompanied by paintings and photographs from the period. Well told without getting too personal or political, this is a perfect text for a young reader.     Also contains a full list of the kings and queens of England, a family tree of Queen Victoria, picture credits, notes and an index.  A wonderful source for a thorough but light biography.
