About this title

Synopsis:

Imagine you could travel back in time, and not just a few days, weeks, or years, even. Imagine you could travel back through centuries and see what it was like to live in Victorian times, the Middle Ages, the time of the Romans, or the great civilization of Ancient Egypt. Then, why not continue on thousands of years - back to the early days of humans themselves, struggling through the Ice Ages? And then, on back millions of years to the Age of Dinosaurs, to the great coal faorests, to a time when there was no life on land at all - to the first days of the Earth itself. The Incredible Journey to the Beginning of Time takes you such a journey.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-This book presents itself as a time machine zeroing in on New York City, southwestern France, Egypt, and northern China over a period of 15 billion years. Each designated period occupies a two-page spread. One page describes the world in the given year, providing population statistics, facts about recent discoveries or advancements, or information about what life forms existed. A full-color illustration (an enlarged version of one of the four drawings on the facing page) is accompanied by a description of the scene. A paragraph under each illustration informs readers about that part of the world. The book starts in the present and then goes back to 1900, 1650, 1250, 100, 1500 B.C.E., 5000 B.C.E. and ends 10-15 billion years ago, with a brief explanation of the "Big Bang." Since the jumps back through time are so large, it is easy to see how far we've progressed as a civilization. On the other hand, it is also not doing justice to all that has happened in the world. Nonetheless, the book may satisfy the curiosity of youngsters seeking a glimpse of Earth's history.
