Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In less than a century, the incredible Incas came to dominate ten million people within an empire that rivaled the scale of the Roman Empire. Life in the Inca world was rigidly ordered, but all were fed and clothed from birth to death. This nicely detailed offering describes the lives of the rich and poor, their pastimes and fashions, their extraordinary art and architecture, and much more about their civilization, including the fall of the empire to the Spanish. The opening two-page spread is a precious photograph of a mountain woman, her child and their smiling llama standing on an Andean hillside, and it reflects how little the people have changed over generations. The text is busy but well labeled, with many inserts of meaningful photos of artifacts and reproductions of 16th century life. A lot of accurate information is provided in this compact format, making this a useful resource for reports and an impetus for further research. A pronunciation guide and index are included. Unfortunately, no additional resources are listed. Part of the "Ticktock Early Civilizations" series. 2000, Barron's, . Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Elaine Wick
KLIATT
These new entries in an attractive series for upper elementary and middle school students examine daily life in various early civilizations. Their strength lies in the many color photos and illustrations that show aspects of each civilization, ranging from art and architecture to fashion, health and medicine, life for the rich and for the poor, religion, love and marriage, crime and punishment, food and drink, pastimes, and more. Topics are presented as double-page spreads, with text consisting of a paragraph and detailed captions for the many illustrations. So these books are of more interest as a browsing experience than as research tools, and they tend to oversimplify their subjects. They do give a visual sense of the richness and variety inherent in these cultures, however, and may serve to spark interest in further investigation. (Early Civilizations). KLIATT Codes: J—Recommended for junior high school students. 2000, Barron's/Ticktock Guides, 32p, 99-68837, illus, maps, indexes, 24cm, $5.95. Ages 13 to 15.
