From Homer's Iliad to a farmer's hard life in the hilly farmlands near Athens, here's an introduction to daily life in Greece 2,500 years ago. Young readers will learn about early democracy, city-states, warfare, religion, and the history of the region. But they will also read about a chariot race, see a cutaway of a typical home, join the bride and groom at a wedding feast, and attend a play at a theater built into a hillside. With color illustrations on every page, this concise and fact-filled introduction to ancient Greece will please even the most reluctant of readers.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6?Three ancient civilizations are introduced in these titles. Double-page spreads focus on a particular topic such as cultural and social life, political organization, religion, and warfare. Numerous illustrations and examples of architecture and artifacts related to each topic help to provide further information. The brief, often stilted texts do not provide enough material for reports, but the colorful layout may attract browsers. "Spotlights" alert readers to objects and artifacts that can often be found in museums. For greater eye appeal with similarly limited information, try George Hart's Ancient Egypt (Harcourt, 1989), Simon James's Ancient Rome (Viking, 1992), and Anne Pearson's Ancient Greece (Knopf, 1992).
