This book will fascinate children who show interest in ancient civilizations. And, because it shows pictures of a naturally mummified body, it might just be interesting to just about any elementary or junior high school child. This book gives a brief but interesting overview of the recent discovery of the Iceman, a 5,000 year old man found frozen in an Alpine glacier. The book tells this remarkable story while teaching the basics of history and archeology. This book is also an enjoyable read for adults.
