Grade 5–8—These books invite readers to travel back in time and tour ancient civilizations, thus providing an attractive and interesting way to explore these topics. How to travel, places to stay, what to see, and what to eat are all included. Colorful photographs, illustrations, reproductions, and boxed tips for travelers help to sustain the travel-guide style and provide more information. Aztec Empire explains that two calendars are used to keep dates, one by the priests for religious festivals and the other for the ordinary people to calculate important events such as market days. Bingham mentions that all men are required to work for the empire part of the year, and that it provides the basic necessities for those who are too old to work or become ill, or in emergencies. In Ancient China, suggested sights include The Great Wall; the peaceful countryside; or great cities such as Dunhuang, a trading city, and Chang'an, a city of emperors. With their "you-are-there" approach, these books are perfect for browsing.—Lana Miles, Jackson Elementary School, Rosenberg, TX
