Gr 4-6-A nice range of cultures is offered in these overviews, though with only four titles, the set is far from comprehensive. The busy, bright design incorporates blocks of small-font text, plenty of relevant photos, reproductions, and numerous informative sidebars. The rich information will allow students to explore the ways history and mythology affect each other. Stories, clearly marked "RETELLING," are interspersed throughout each volume, offering legends and tales such as "How the world began" in Norse. The back matter is full of solid resources, including lists of "Characters, Creatures, and Places" (with pronunciation guides), reading suggestions, websites (which are annotated and focus on public television and museums sites), as well as "Places to Visit" and ideas for "Further Research." Great choice for libraries seeking volumes that look above and beyond the pantheon. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
