    Review:

    "This attractive title is a graphic catalog of the well-preserved ruins of the doomed city of Pompeii. Vongprachanh's digital renderings of Roman architecture are spectacular. ...This title soars visually. An accompanying CD provides three-dimensional reconstructions of six Pompeiian architectural spaces, making it a great addition that will interest even the most reluctant students. VERDICT A beautiful and fascinating learning tool for Roman architecture and art history."
    School Library Journal

    "Take a tour of Pompeii before the earthquake - exploring streets, houses, shops, amphitheater. Combining photos of the ruins with illustrations of artifacts, paintings, house plans, mosaics, and graphic re-creations of a thermopolium, House of the Tragic Poet, bakery and Stabian Baths, Pompeii is brought to life."

    "Explore 360° Pompeii is a gem of a book, with pages of historical facts, illustrations and amazing photographs. The quality of the book alone, including its printing, photographs and drawings should be enough to make anyone want to buy it. The text is well written, fascinating and enlightening. Then add to that the phenomenal CD offering a mesmerizing 3D interactive experience that will capture any child's attention, and you've got a wonderfully unique learning experience. How the publisher can offer all this for a mere $18.99 retail price is beyond me. It's so important that our children learn about geography and culture, and Explore 360° Pompeii is the perfect way to do that This is not your every day nonfiction book. Rather it is a book to be treasured and a testament to the quality and care that goes into Barron's Educational titles to educate our children."

    "Young readers will be amazed."
    --Museum Store

    "Explore 360 Pompeii is a feast for the eyes. The book is filled with beautiful pictures from the past. While it is a bit disconcerting to know that Pompeii was destroyed yet preserved, the photos are stunning. This is a great source to add to an ancient history course or just to read for the wonder of it. Barron's 360 series brings media and photography together. Pompeii allows kids (adults too) to discover the incredible city and the everyday life of her citizens."
    --Night Owl Reviews

    "This oversize, slim volume offers a colorful, abundantly illustrated primer to ancient Pompeii's fascinating history. Following a brief overview, spreads highlight the 79 CE Mount Vesuvius eruption that buried the city under ash, describe the nineteenth-century archaeological excavations, and then focus on Pompeii and Roman life pre-eruption, including architecture, daily life, government, and arts, as well as ongoing preservation issues. Straightforward prose incorporates occasional Latin terms, which are defined in context, while sidebars and text boxes add literary quotations and facts, such as how the plaster casts of Pompeii's victims were made in the nineteenth century. ...There's plenty to intrigue and engage those interested in Pompeii and early Roman times. An accompanying CD-ROM provides interactive, 3-D views of some of the book's digitally re-created places and buildings."
    Booklist

    "This gorgeous picture book tells the story with a wonderful collection of photographs and illustrations strewn across every page, with well-written snippets of text and pertinent quotes sharing the space. The illustrations have good detail and will give youngsters a feeling of really being there. This is a great introduction to this moment in history. Not only will young children enjoy it, but older brothers and sisters will want to spend time with it as well."
