Overview

You don’t have to travel all the way to Italy to get a close-up view of Rome and all it’s splendor. This book takes a visual approach to the study of key periods in world history curriculum. It looks at the period of history through the eyes of a child investigating the aspects of the society that matter to them. The title does not just focus on childhood but looks at all aspects of daily life through the eyes of someone examining the evidence. The book uses enlarged photographs, labeled photos and unusual uses of images to give the books a visual edge. The focus is on photos as evidence rather than the reconstruction artwork that is commonly used, while delivering information that is curriculum relevant and at a level that can be understood by the target audience.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-These books, written in present-tense, second-person voice, introduce life on a busy street in ancient times. Readers learn about cities, dress, food differences for the rich and poor, what life was like for children, and unique aspects of each civilization, such as the Roman baths and the creation of hieroglyphics in Egypt. Simple descriptions of crops and livestock, languages, and contributions to society through science and art are included. Medical discoveries, government organization, and favorite entertainments are also described, with sidebars and photo captions to complement each page. A simple map at the beginning of each book places the civilization in relation to other countries. A spread of facts including numbers, time, money, important dates, etc., is appended. Accessible texts and plentiful photos of art and sculptures make these titles solid introductions for reports or personal interest.-Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
