In What was it like before the telephone? three children visit a museum and explore some of the ways that people used to communicate before there were telephones, from beacons to flags, to mail coaches, the pony express and the telegraph. They discover what life was like in the days before the telephone brought instant communication! I Want to Know is an informative series that answers questions on a wide range of topics including Geography, History and Science, in a fun and accessible way. Facts are brought to life with a mix of illustrations and photographs.
