With our 24/7 news cycle and constant access to the latest headlines, the world can be a scary place. Now imagine you're a child trying to make sense of it all! That's where books from the Children in Our World series can help. Each book uses relatable comparisons, carefully researched text, and striking illustrations to help kids understand the many difficulties that children just like them face in the world today. In Racism and Intolerance, children can get answers to questions like: "What does it mean to be a racist--or intolerant?" and "How can I help?" Children will begin to understand the way others struggle with these issues and become empowered to make a difference. Award-winning illustrator Hanane Kai uses a deft hand to create powerful illustrations that help children visualize the people impacted by poverty, hunger, war, racism, and more. All of the images are sensitively rendered and perfectly suited for younger children. These books are an excellent cross-curricular resource--use them to explore important issues and tie them into discussions about food, wealth, compassion, empathy, and current affairs.

Can modern DNA analysis uncover clues about the ancestry and migration of Romans? What new information can forensic science teach us about the fate of the citizens of Pompeii? How can X-rays help us analyze ancient art to learn about ancient Roman life? Find answers to these questions and more in this captivating title, which examines how forensic science has allowed scientists, archaeologists, and historians to solve mysteries and answer questions about ancient Rome. From School Library Journal: Gr 2-5-Integrating science and history, this series uses archaeology as a means to explore the past. Highlighting techniques such as carbon dating, computer 3-D modeling, and soil sampling, each title describes how these methods are used to find and analyze evidence, answering questions about the various cultures and giving historians more information than they would gather from visual observations. Bright colors, plenty of sidebars, and spotlight features make these titles easy to navigate and highly attractive. The usual suspects of ancient cultures are featured. VERDICT Exploring familiar territory with a twist, these titles are good for schools looking to beef up their STEM work with students. α(c) Copyright 2011.
