Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Williamson
From the series "Changing Times: Ancient Greece," this title is filled with information about various aspects of the daily lives of people living in the Greek city-states from its illustrious beginning, around 2000 B.C. to 150 B.C., when the Roman Empire took control of Greece. The information is substantiated with the writings of Greek philosophers, poets, playwrights, historians, and orators whose words are used to support this discussion of life for the average person or family in Ancient Greece. As well as the many historical quotations, there are illustrations and pictures of Greek art which provide support for the topics discussed. Some of the topics included are: home life, marriage, children, education, games, clothing, diet, occupations, slavery, religion, and death. To make this book more usable in the classroom, a table of contents, time line, glossary, bibliography for further reading, and an index are included. This book provides excellent resources and information to support a unit for the study of Ancient Greece and its people. Reviewer: Naomi Williamson
