Ancient Mesopotamia: The Sumerians, Babylonians, and Assyrians (People of the Ancient World) Reviews
This is a tremendous resource which, among other things, really helps kids figure out the Mesopotamian societies. Anyone who has delved into this area knows how confusing it is to keep the Sumerians, Assyrians, and Babylonians all distinguished from one another. There is a tendency to lump all "Mesopotamians" together in a way that makes it easier to talk about but harder to understand. In fact, at one point in studying this, I figured out that my seven year old thought "Mesopotamians" were different from Sumerians and Babylonians... a fourth culture!
This book is good for anyone seeking an overview of ancient Mesopotamia. There are plenty of color photographs of artifacts, as well as substantial information that seems to be well-researched. Chapters focus on the daily life of people in different occupations (e.g., Merchants and Traders, Peasant Farmers, Doctors and Scientists). The glossary, biographical dictionary, and timeline (covering the period c. 9000 BC to 539 BC) add to the value of this resource.
This book is not for great study but it gives you a very brief look at the history of ancient Mesopotamia, with nice photos .
This book has history and pictures. It makes it easy to see and share this history with kids and teens.
While I do feel that the information in this book is good, it is written so that your 14 year old will have no problem gliding through this book. This is by no means a college level book, although it does have some really nice pictures. I personally would have preferred more thorough information as opposed to large fonts with full page pictures.
Its ok but not as much info as I was hoping. For general info is okay. Buy it and try it . Cheap enough.
What do these items have in common?
Very lovely, informative, entertaining, elegant, delightful.
