This series is really great for kids learning about Ancient times. These are great for 3rd-5th graders. My kids really liked the way it is written and the funny pictures. I find they are a great way to review history.

I've used this book to teaching ancient Mesopotamia to 8 year olds. Yes, that young. The pictures show every day life in several aspects -- the river as Life, mud bricks, family life, religious life, the wars, the temples. And it's really funny. ;) You think your parents abuse you? Why don't I sell you into slavery to pay off a lawsuit? Huh?!

A Kid's Review on September 25, 2013
Format: Paperback
This is a fine book to read if you are learning about Sumerians. I liked it because it tells how the Sumerian people lived.
