Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-All three titles discuss homes, occupations, food, leisure, clothing, and building structures, and include a recipe. Chapter spreads include a main paragraph in large-print text, a color-blocked sidebar, and full-color illustrations and photos of artifacts. Vocabulary is easy, and glossary terms appear in bold. Children will find these selections useful for reports. Information is very basic, but there's enough to give a flavor for the culture and to spark further interest. The lists for further reading, with rare exception, refer to other books published by Heinemann. These titles are serviceable, but they're not exceptional.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
