Grade 4-8-Engaging trips through time and space. Each book begins with a brief introduction that provides background on the time period followed by information on each civilization's culture, geography, economy, and history. Recipes, games, time lines, and who's who lists are also included. Sidebars provide fascinating tidbits. Mayan Civilization covers the period A.D. 600-800. Interesting facts and discussions (the use of cacao beans for money, the belief in human sacrifice, and the Mayan concept of beauty) will maintain reader interest. Colonial America contains information about schools, medicine, forms of punishment, and various group activities such as chopping bees. Civil War provides a glimpse of both civilian and military life. Black-and white and full-color photographs of sites and artifacts and drawings enliven these narratives. Excellent sources for reports and projects.
