Gr 4-6-Large, colorful illustrations are the major part of these two books. Drawings often accompany the photographs of artifacts, enhancing the explanations of daily life and culture in these early civilizations. A short paragraph introduces each chapter; otherwise the text serves mainly as captions. The introductions often contain facts not discussed in the body of the books, and the depth of information in them is about as thorough as that in subsequent chapters. For example, in Egypt, agriculture, irrigation, and the calendar are mentioned in the opening paragraphs, but the chapters that follow focus more on particular subjects, such as pyramid builders or death and the afterlife. The indexes list mainly proper nouns rather than subjects, thus limiting the books' usefulness for reports.-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH
