Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Reviewed with Imogen Dawson's Clothes and Crafts in the Middle Ages.

Gr. 4-6. Highly illustrated with reproductions of period artworks and photos of sites and artifacts, the Clothes and Crafts in History series offers an overview of life in a particular culture, emphasizing crafts, clothing, and festivals. Each book begins with a map and a little basic history, then discusses the materials available and how craftsmen used them to create useful, beautiful things. Middle Ages ends with a section showing children how to make medieval kirtles, tunics, jewelry, a pilgrim's badge, and an illuminated manuscript. In Roman Times , children will learn how to make a dolphin broach, a mosaic, a wreath of oak leaves, an actor's mask, and small clay statues. Though the topics and time periods are too large for such short books, the texts are fairly good, and the illustrations are quite good. Other titles in this series are listed in the Series Roundup in this issue. Carolyn Phelan
