Gr 1-4–Laroche takes readers back to the metropolises of the ancient world, like Babylon and Machu Picchu, and details the lives of their citizens. Using simple explanations for younger readers, the text lays out where these cities were built, who lived there, and how they may have disappeared. With further mysteries and theories of these lost civilizations, this title will surely inspire young archaeologists to learn more about history and the ancient world. Laroche’s art is the real star of this title. Paper, cut and layered, builds beautiful landscapes with a 3D effect. The visual precision and attention to detail will captivate readers. A short note explains how each piece was created and may inspire young artists to try it for themselves.
VERDICT Immaculate art and fun facts make this a must for any classroom collection.
