School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-Credible but very brief overviews of these ancient cultures. The books are eye-catching with good-quality color photographs of artifacts and ruins, maps, and art reproductions. Texts are large and easy to read but vary in writing quality, often utilizing short, choppy sentences. Appendixes include a list of famous people from each culture and an excellent Internet resource. Readers are given instructions and a code number to access Web sites through Fact Hound, an Internet portal. The sites are good sources for information and activities related to each title. The books plus the Web sites provide enough information for reports. Additional purchases if books on these topics are needed.-Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukie, OR (c) Copyright 2010.
