Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6Three ancient civilizations are introduced in these titles. Double-page spreads focus on a particular topic such as cultural and social life, political organization, religion, and warfare. Numerous illustrations and examples of architecture and artifacts related to each topic help to provide further information. The brief, often stilted texts do not provide enough material for reports, but the colorful layout may attract browsers. "Spotlights" alert readers to objects and artifacts that can often be found in museums. For greater eye appeal with similarly limited information, try George Hart's Ancient Egypt (Harcourt, 1989), Simon James's Ancient Rome (Viking, 1992), and Anne Pearson's Ancient Greece (Knopf, 1992).-Cynthia Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukie, OR
