Grade 6 Up–Each volume in this loose-leaf set is divided into multiple sections, primarily by geography, and includes the major themes of religion, arts, and science and technology. Most of the time lines are enhanced by a black-and-white line drawing, portrait, or map of the period. Unfortunately, the density of the text and the repetitive nature of the layouts create some visually dull pages. Some of the shorter time lines permit more than one graphic, which adds more interest. In general, the maps are the most appealing and useful enhancements. As the reproduction certificate in each volume indicates, the pages can be photocopied and distributed to students as reference material. However, this set is even more valuable as a teacher resource because of the curriculum ideas it will generate. With 18 new plates and 150 newly designed illustrations, the set is a valuable acquisition, but not a critical replacement of the 2000 edition.–Linda Greengrass, Bank Street College Library, New York City
