School Library Journal

Gr 2-4

Framed as answers to the same nine questions, each of these Eurocentric introductions opens with a historical overview (which includes a map), then goes on to describe family life, common occupations, schooling (if any), social classes, government, and religion. Each section, consisting of one or two spreads, includes a brief inset profile of a historical figure, such as a temple singer in Egypt or Pericles's companion and speech writer, Aspasia, in Greece, plus several large color photos of period art and artifacts. Despite B.C./A.D. dating and occasional banality-"The most important person in Ancient Egypt was the pharaoh..."-these books should make at least some ancient cultures seem a little more tangible to young students.
