    We looked at several different alternatives before selecting this volume as a basic world history reference book. As with any secular product, we contend with the "dating" problems (the book dates the beginning of history at 40,000 B.C.), and evolutionary references. However, the book is an excellent reference with many outstanding features:

    • It's all in one book (491 pgs) making it a handy reference for studies of any and all time periods.
    • The paper is nice and thick, designed to tolerate years of "wear and tear".
    • Chronologically-arranged and cross- referenced articles.
    • Over 2000 colorful illustrations, including photographs and charts as well as annotated maps.
    • A handy reference section at the back of the book that has lists of national leaders throughout history; wars; and explorations/discoveries.
    • The comprehensive indexing makes it easy to quickly find the information or related articles you need.

    This book replaced the old Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World a number of years ago. Although similar, there are some differences in this new book. Curriculums that refer to the original book may not correspond exactly to the replacement version. We think this will be a volume you will use again and again, not just for world history studies, but for unit studies of all kinds.

    This fictitious tale is set in Ancient Rome. Caius, Rufus, Antonius, Mucius, Flavius, Julius, and Publius are students in the finest grammar school in all of Rome. Only wealthy patricians can afford to send their sons to this school, so these seven are the entire class. One day Cauis begins to irritate Rufus, and Rufus retaliates by writing "Cauis is a dumbbell" on his writing tablet and hanging it up at the front of the classroom. This leads to a scuffle, which their teacher soon dissolves. Rufus is sent home, and the boys are subdued. The next day arrives with a string of mysteries. Neither Rufus nor Cauis come to school, but an even bigger problem is that the teacher isn't there! This has never happened before. The remaining students find him tied up in his closet, his house ransacked. It appears that the burglar took only some mathematic books, unimportant pictures, and Rufus's writing tablet. When the boys go to visit Rufus, they find the words "Cauis is a dumbbell" written in red paint on the temple wall. Rufus claims he is innocent and his handwriting was forged, but his classmates discover that he was out all night long, with no good alibi. Now Rufus has been arrested, and it's up to his six friends to find out who is behind all the mysteries before Rufus is punished for desecrating the temple!

    Golden fleece, titans, and muses, oh my! This is a very thorough collection of ancient Greek myths accompanied by artful pencil drawings in color and black and white.

    Starting with Gaea and Uranus (Earth and sky), stories are chronological to the Titans, Zeus and his descendants. Supporting characters are also given their due. Children will read about Hera, Hades, Persephone, Pandora, Centaurs, Orpheus, the Gorgon, King Midas, Oedipus, and more.

    The tales are written for children to understand. Add this book to a unit study of ancient Greece, the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Mediterranean region, or even as a study of ancient religions. Compare their beliefs with modern ones. ~Sara
