Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lynn O'Connell
More than 30,000 years of history are included in this book which uses text, photos, maps, and timelines to describe the most influential ancient civilizations in our world's history. A chapter about the Stone Age opens the book, covering the first two million years of mankind's existence. From there, the editors describe and illustrate other great civilizations—Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, the Aztec and Maya worlds, the Inca world, the Chinese Empire, and Ancient Japan. There are 512 pages in the book, which makes for a comprehensive world history, but also one that is easy to read and understand because of the book's more than 3,000 illustrations. Step-by-step directions for more than 100 hands-on projects are also spread throughout the book; activities range from making a Chinese dragon kite to creating a Greek actor's mask or designing a Japanese tea bowl. This book could definitely function as a library reference work relating to ancient civilizations, but it would also work well for students in a class or at home who desire further study about ancient cultures.
