Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
A vibrant cover photo of the ancient Sphinx greets readers who want to learn about the mysteries of ancient places and objects in this book from the "Unsolved!" series. Chapter selections focus on the stone giants who keep a sentinel watch on Easter Island, the old city of Tiahuanaco high in the Andes, The Great Pyramid of Egypt, and Eldorado, a special place that exists in the imagination of people. The format offers three-to-six well-written paragraphs per spread. Accompanying captioned photos and illustrations add to the ease of comprehension. Sidebars contain extra intriguing facts such as that some Easter Island statues are more than 30 feet high and that a coffin discovered in one ancient pyramid is too big to fit through any of its doorways. Teachers can use this excellent resource to supplement social studies and history lessons about wonders in far off places. A glossary, an index, and a list of resources round out the book.
