" In the time since I added this to my Want To Read list, I had forgotten this one was a children's book. Lots of great pictures and interesting facts of daily life during ancient times. A great way to supplement a Social Studies lesson or introduce new readers to the joys of exploring history. " said.

"This was so much fun- it's aimed at a younger audience, and is framed as a 'travel book' tongue-in-cheek. Each chapter (there are four, One each on Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, and the Aztecs & Incas.) opens with the time, who is in power, and a good place to start your travels... then it offers 'travel advice' on how the local natives dress, eat, what thier culture is like, things to be careful of, and even things you might want to do or see while there.

It's adoreable and filled with fantastic artwork not unlike the DK series, but in many mediums, making it good eye candy to read aloud to a younger child, or to really draw IN an older reader- even as an adult, knowing these 'facts' already, I found it fun to read. I really, genuinely enjoyed it.

I would reccomend it to parents trying to get thier youth or child interested in ancient history or perhaps social studies or geography- and for any adult who just wants a fun walk through history with the artistic eye-candy to make you smile. :)

"This is good for elementary school children. It is written at a simplistic level with lots of big pictures and scattered with quizzes. You wouldn't be able to write a thorough report for it, but it provides some decent information on Egypt, Greece, Rome, Aztecs and Incas. Nothing about ancient Asia, Africa, or any other of the early foundations of society and civilization." said.

"This book is great fun in that you're actually a tourist through the time period. It was a great companion book to our tour of the Carlos Museum, Atlanta, GA. The pictures are revealing enough that you can use them to explain when you don't have time to read through the book." said.
