Attractive introductions about life in, and the cultures of, ancient civilizations. Most of the pages
are covered with color-coded text boxes that provide related information about geography,

Brief sections of text; extensive, mostly fullcolor, captioned artwork; and frequent chatty sidebars
make for an attractive layout that won‘t overwhelm young readers. This engaging treatment is a
good choice for browsing, as well as for history units.
