Bad boys, bad boys. What’cha gonna do? Apparently fall out of a tree.

Believe it or not, the beginning of the new school year is fast approaching! To start getting into the proper mindset, this week we have an education-themed book blog post.

This is the sixth in a series of blog posts that celebrate the “Book Blogs” created by students in Professor Siân Echard’s “The History of the Book” course during the spring 2015 term. For this assignment, students in the class were asked to choose an item (book or otherwise) from RBSC, research its history, and introduce it to a public audience through a blog or wiki.

Liam Scanlon’s wiki takes a look at a number of books in RBSC’s historical textbook collection to explore changes in education and expectations of childhood.

Thankfully, children’s books and school books today are a little less grim and, ah, stringent, than they have been in the past.
