Explore the incredible life of Queen Elizabeth II in this children's biography. Discover the inspiring story of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in British history.

At just 25 years of age, Princess Elizabeth succeeded King George VI to the British throne. This compelling audiobook looks at Elizabeth's life as both a public and private figure. It traces her early years as a princess, her experiences in the women's army during World War II, her coronation, and her life as queen both at home and in the public eye. The audiobook looks at Elizabeth's marriage to Prince Philip, her husband of more than 70 years, and her life as a mother to her four children, including her eldest son Prince Charles, the heir to the throne. In this biography audiobook for kids ages 8-11, learn how Elizabeth has worked alongside 13 British prime ministers, met leaders from around the world, and has remained a stable presence as head of the British royal family.

This new kids' biography series from DK goes beyond the basic facts to tell the true life stories of history's most interesting and inspiring people.
