The Museum of Childhood traces the history of childhood through some of the museum's most cherished objects.

The book reveals how children have played, dressed, learned and grown through the ages, by turns intriguing, poignant and nostalgic. Sarah Wood also tells the story of how one of the world's best collections related to childhood came to reside in Bethnal Green, London. From the oldest surviving English rocking horse, to costume fit for royalty, to toys children of today love, and their parents remember, this book will delight the child in us all.
