Gr 5-7-This mediocre series is marred by significant issues. Aztecs, Egypt, Sparta, and Babylon contain substantial fictionalisation without explaining that the narratives exist only to illustrate different experiences within these civilizations. Given the target audience, such clarification is necessary. Celts focuses almost completely on the Celts across Europe instead of (as the title states) the British Isles. Much of Athens is written in second person, a style choice students are frequently told to avoid in their own writing. Many of the visual elements are grainy. Words defined in the glossaries are not bolded in the texts. Some information can be found in this set, but it's buried beneath a lot of weak editorial decisions. Recipes and crafts or activities round out the back matter.ÃÂ±(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
