Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Plato wrote about this island city but people question the existence of Atlantis. Stories included descriptions of a wealthy, advanced society; however, legend claims that the city sank during a flood after an earthquake. Some people continue to seek for answers about the mysterious city of Atlantis. The bold print words in the body of the text are defined at the bottom of the page. These words make up the glossary. The glossary includes a pronunciation guide. In the “True or False?” sections, readers are asked to identify the explanations that support and do not support the existence of Atlantis. There is a list of resources (i.e. additional books and The FactHound internet site) to further pursue information about this mysterious city. Those children who enjoy reading about unique mysteries may wish to explore other titles in the “First Facts: Unsolved Mystery” series. This series includes the Bermuda Triangle, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster, and more puzzling oddities. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung; Ages 7 to 9.
