Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
Flavia is an eight-year-old citizen of Rome, the capital of the Roman Empire. With her friends, Felix and Titus, we are invited on an adventure to explore what it was like to live in ancient Rome. Flavia teaches us how to play sports, how to trade in the marketplace, and what to wear and eat. Simple maps and diorama-style illustrations help the reader understand what everyday life was like in this ancient city. Readers will learn how to make a mosaic, a snake bracelet and a drum. The story of Androcles and the Lion is included as an additional curriculum link. An index is also included. This series, "My World" is an excellent introduction to ancient civilizations for the early grades.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-Three different authors show how art provides primary-source information about everyday and family life, beliefs and religion, and philosophy and mythology in these ancient civilizations. They explain that it provides evidence of the early use of Chinese acupuncture, the design of Greek warships, the vanity of Roman emperors, and much more. The books follow a well-organized format that makes the history accessible for reports, but the authors' individual styles take the books beyond a reports-only status. Captions for the two or three illustrations per spread are clear. Lines point to specifically mentioned details, and boxed information corresponds to nearby artwork. The pages are attractively designed to present many facts without being too busy or confusing. A regretful omission is a pronunciation guide in the glossary. These books offer a different perspective on how historians learn about ancient civilizations. They introduce not a history of art, but rather a history through art.-Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
