The pyramids are a fascinating part of our historybut have you ever wondered if they were related to aliens from outer space? Is there really a city made of gold like in the story of El Dorado? This fascinating book examines the many myths and legends about our ancient past, searching for and finding facts about fascinating sites that include Stonehenge and the lost city of Tiahuanaco. From School Library Journal: Grade 4–6—While Atlantis covers one topic, Ancients introduces four—Easter Island statues, the ruins of Tiahuanaco in the Andes, Egypt's Great Pyramids, and Eldorado, legendary city of South America. Packed with information, each skinny book is busy with large type; colorful, well-captioned illustrations and photographs; and "How Strange..." side boxes. While not always "strange," they are interesting. The writing is clear enough, but the proper nouns, especially in Ancients, will be hard to pronounce: "Roggeveen," "Khufu," "Drbal," and so on. Pronunciation guides would have been helpful. Bold words are defined along the bottom of every page. This is the weakest part of the texts. While "Poseidon," "solar year," and "gilded" are handily defined, there is no reason to define such terms as "mayor" or "dinosaur" to this audience. These words are then duplicated in glossaries. Despite these few small concerns, these are worthy titles. Fascinating fare for research and browsing.—Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

The scientific contributions of the early Islamic empires to science, medicine, and mathematics is considerable. This book explores: their public hospitals, libraries, and universities; their achievements in mathematics and astronomy, and the pursuit of alchemy; Arabic numbers; optics; music and musical instruments; and, poetry and education. From School Library Journal: Gr 5-7-Each book covers a particular aspect of life in the early Islamic world. The writing is generally simple enough for the intended audience but does not sacrifice quality of scholarship. Information is presented in concise chapters and is graphically well organized. The main texts are supplemented with blue boxes of information, subsections, and many high-quality reproductions, maps, and paintings. Each book contains time lines and short biographies of important historical figures. Together, the books provide a strong introduction to the study of life in the early Islamic world. Other similar titles have not been as successful at maintaining scholarly veracity while tailoring the information for young people.-Justin Parrott, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OHα(c) Copyright 2011.
