Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-8–Following a short preface, these overviews provide horizontal time lines for significant worldwide events, color-coded by region, and vertical time lines that list happenings related to chapter topics on most pages. These are complemented by narratives arranged in 10 four- to six-page chapters that discuss noteworthy events and people, and outstanding illustrations, including period art, photos, and informative maps and cutaway drawings. Unfortunately, the books’ large font size and limited background and topic coverage are suitable for students in the lower level of the grade range, but reading levels are higher, making these titles supplemental options for most collections.
