This series covers the facts that students are curious about. Each book explores the lifestyles of ancient peoples, highlighting what people wore, what they ate, and how they worked and played together. Information about cities, armies, artwork, and religion is included as well. Each double-page spread focuses on one idea, such as "Festivals and Games" and "Travel and Trade," making the titles very user-friendly. There is a nice balance of text, graphics, and white space, so students will not be overwhelmed with information. Photographs of statues, artifacts, and ruins are complemented by vibrant maps, diagrams, sidebars, and captions. Bibliography. Chronology. Glossary. Websites. Table of Contents. Index. Recommended.
