More About This Book

Overview

A young man overhears his mom's conversation with a friend. He misunderstands the meaning of the word ancient as it relates to his grandma and grandpa. The misunderstanding deepens when Mr. Boca writes the words ANCIENT HISTORY on the white board. The boy thinks, "Ancient means old...My grandparents are ancient according to Mom. I am learning about Grandma and Grandpa." This young man literally associates the events, buildings, tools, and people of the ancient world with his grandma and grandpa, making them older than they actually are by several thousand years. Although the ancient world is portrayed accurately, the young man's placement of his grandparents in the center of several key cultures found in the ancient world was a tremendous mix-up. When the boy shares his newfound learning with his family, they do not have any words to express their complete surprise. This is a different type of book. It is in a category all its own--children's book/teaching resource. The text has INTERNET based resources providing instructions for parents and teachers on how to use this book to build knowledge of the ancient world.
