Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
In less than two years, the new millennium will begin. What can children do to mark this rare change in the calendar year? They can celebrate with a party and eat what the Maya and Aztec people ate a thousand years ago. They can make a time capsule for the future or design a millennium T-shirt. This book is filled with a variety of fun and interesting projects. A historical time-line will give children a perspective as to how much our civilization has achieved in the last two thousand years.1998, Kids Can Press, Ages 8 to 12, $7.95. Reviewer: Deborah Palgon
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-A fun-filled, how-to manual for the new millennium. Projects, insights, and ideas abound. A timeline running down the recto pages reveals a lot that has happened in the last 2000 years. The first theme park was opened in 900. In 1596 the first flush toilet was installed. And by the year 2000 the world population is expected to exceed six billion. One flaw has it that A.D. 2000 means 2000 years after the birth of Jesus. Most scholars place his birth somewhere around 4 B.C.E. Clear directions accompany the activities and required materials are easy to find. Adult supervision is suggested when necessary. Most crafts are not millennium specific; many can be adapted to celebrate any new decade or year. The numerous black-and-white drawings are tepid but descriptive. Side boxes offer additional trivia such as shoes through the ages. Web sites are listed for possible cybercelebrating. Daniel Cohen's The Millennium (S & S, 1998) debates in more detail when the new millennium actually begins--2000 or 2001--and does a good job of explaining the millennium virus, destined to wreak havoc on all computers. The Kids Guide should appeal to most students for the next year or two.-Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI
