Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6 - These books, written in present-tense, second-person voice, introduce life on a busy street in ancient times. Readers learn about cities, dress, food differences for the rich and poor, what life was like for children, and unique aspects of each civilization, such as the Roman baths and the creation of hieroglyphics in Egypt. Simple descriptions of crops and livestock, languages, and contributions to society through science and art are included. Medical discoveries, government organization, and favorite entertainments are also described, with sidebars and photo captions to complement each page. A simple map at the beginning of each book places the civilization in relation to other countries. A spread of facts including numbers, time, money, important dates, etc., is appended. Accessible texts and plentiful photos of art and sculptures make these titles solid introductions for reports or personal interest. - Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE

From Booklist

Reviewed with Ivan Minnis' You Are in Ancient Rome.

Gr. 3-6. These books in the You Are There! series offer students basic information about important world powers from the past. Ancient China describes the Han Dynasty (207 B.C.E.-220 C.E.), providing information about clothing and lifestyle, city and country life, food, children, literacy, art, technology, entertainment, political life, and religion. Ancient Rome covers the empire at the time of Augustus (27 B.C.E.-14 C.E.), explaining lifestyles and slavery, city and farm life, feasts, childhood, literature, art, road building and architecture, entertainment, emperors, and religion. Both books use double-page-spread chapters with large print and frequent, full-color illustrations. Specialized words appear in bold type, and the use of simple declarative sentences helps to keep the reading level low. This material is accessible to interested primary-grade students, but it will be most useful to middle-schoolers having trouble with grade-level social studies materials. Appended with a glossary, a bibliography, and Web links. Kay Weisman
