Grade 4–8—This atlas is more text-heavy than most, consisting of maps and illustrations accompanied by extensive captions outlining the cultures of many civilizations. Each section begins with a map of a continent and a table of contents detailing which peoples will be discussed in it. Each civilization is covered in a chapter spread that includes a small map of the extent of each empire and many photos, pictures, and captioned drawings. Plastic overlays allow readers to look inside such famous structures as the pyramids of Giza and the Roman Colosseum. The inclusion of peoples such as the mound builders, Pueblo farmers, Australian Aborigines, and Pacific peoples make this a much more complete overview of the ancient world than most books of this type. The accompanying clip art CD contains images of many of the artifacts as well as of the maps found in the book. Though not an in-depth study of any of these civilizations, this atlas offers a wonderful introduction to them as well as solid geography basics.—Clare A. Dombrowski, Amesbury Public Library, MA END
