Reviews for Ancient China
Library Media Connection Reviews 2010 January/February
Each book of this series starts with each author proposing two statements?one true and the other false; thus, giving readers the assurance that everything in the book is true except for one of the sentences on that page. This is only one of the creative ways this series introduces six ancient civilizations that eventually came to an end. The authentic photographs and beautifully illustrated pictures give credence to each of the chapters. Readers will be fascinated by specifics about each civilization that had great power, prestige, and wealth but ended by invasion or annihilation. Although some data about these civilizations are not available because of the lack of recordkeeping, most of the material gives thorough details about the people, their practices, the land, and its buildings. Children would benefit from this historic series that offers fun facts of how people lived and how we can learn from them. Each title includes statistics, resources, lists of organizations, and places to visit. Glossary. Websites. Index. Recommended.
