Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 1-3 These beginning readers have an eye-catching format and incorporate beautifiul reproductions, often full page, on each spread, set against an occasional jewel-toned, black, or textured background. The texts follow a simple sentence structure and mention mediums used, explain both symbolism and realism found within the art as reflections of everyday life and culture, and pinpoint specifics in the pictures. Although not all terms are explained (e.g., woven, loom), many are defined with pronunciation given in parentheses. Egypt has a "search and find" element as well. Although some of the cultural history may be too advanced for the intended audience, these small books provide excellent visual support for curriculum studies of history, art, or early cultures and may be used as hi/lo readers.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX
