Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
This is story of the great military strategist, Alexander the Great. The Contents page shows the scope of the historical information. Some text is printed on a papyrus-like background and emphasizes this historical era. Maps and illustrations complement the text. Sidebars highlight relevant data. A Timeline from 356 BCE when Alexander was born to his death in 323 chronicles events during his life in Ancient Greece. Pages in the back of the book provide instructions on how to keep a journal. The Glossary explains relevant historical and military terms. Find Out More lists Books, Web sites, and Places to visit for more information about Alexander the Great and Ancient Greece. Topics for further research direct students to study more about this era with three suggested projects. An Index provides easy navigation through the content. The book is part of the “Hero Journals Series” which includes: Geronimo, Hannibal of Carthage, Julius Caesar, Ramesses II, and Shaka Zulu, and would provide excellent supplementary materials for a history curriculum. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith; Ages 9 to 12.
