Children's LiteratureGreece has such an ancient and rich history that it can be difficult to include adequate information in an overview. Weber has managed to hit the high points and has provided an adequate introduction to a subject that spans centuries. The majority of the text is taken up with full-color illustrations of places, buildings and people of Ancient Greece. The actual text accompanying the illustrations is brief and targets several specific topics in the illustration. Beginning with the Minoans and Mycenaeans and continuing on with brief looks at Troy, Sparta, Athens and myths and legends, Weber provides the most basic information on each topic as well as brief looks at archaeology and modern Greece. The language is simple and easy to understand and gives just enough basic information to point children in the proper direction for more research in suitable resources. This title is part of the "Best Book" series. 2005, Kingfisher Publications, Ages 6 to 9.
