Reviews

This book accomplishes a difficult goal: providing a high-interest visual experience that also has informational depth. A beautiful addition to any elementary or middle school library, this work is the closest readers will come to attending a museum without leaving home. --School Library Journal (starred review) From Stone Age tools to Egyptian canopic jars and an 11th-century Iranian bowl featuring an early calligraphic form of Arabic, Wilkinson's striking replications and Nelson's informative descriptions offer insight into objects both sacred and mundane. --Publishers Weekly ...an effective way to pique the interest of history-loving kids. --Booklist Inviting. --Kirkus Reviews
