We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

These books offer overviews of the rise and fall of five ancient civilizations. After a brief look at how archaeologists uncover details about the past, cleanly designed two-page sections focus on such topics as government, home life, religion, and major battles. The random presentation can be confusing, but the clear texts are supported by well-captioned photographs and helpful maps. Reading list, timeline. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Understanding People in the Past titles: [cf2]The Ancient Egyptians[cf1], [cf2]The Ancient Greeks[cf1], [cf2]The Ancient Romans[cf1], [cf2]The Aztecs[cf1], and [cf2]The Incas[cf1].] Copyright 2007 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Two books that fill the large void for quality world history titles geared toward the early elementary grades. Both titles are historically accurate, visually arresting, and age-appropriate. The easy-to-read texts cover each topic on a double-page spread. Outstanding, full-color photographs of museum artifacts, maps, diagrams, and drawings appear throughout. Colorful sidebars add to the informational richness of each subject. (Indeed, this is "Eyewitness" quality illustration with "New True Book" readability.) The general scope of these titles is an appropriate balance of succinct introductory facts that highlight the social, economic, political, and cultural life of the civilization in clear, larger-than normal print type. In Egyptians, for example, coverage includes the pharaohs, their gods, pyramids, and mummies, while in Greeks, special topics such as the gods, Olympic games, and theater accompany information on fashion, family life, trade, etc. In addition, each volume concludes with a useful historical time line, glossary, and index. Children with an interest in ancient times, peoples, and places will savor these titles. Copyright 1998 School Library Journal Reviews
