Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2009 December)

Gr 2–5—These fascinating cultures are outlined for young readers with care and precision. Although gorier features of each culture are largely avoided, a reasonably complete picture of each people's history and culture is presented. Loaded with access points such as captions, pull-outs, a time line, and a map, and with better-than-usual reproductions of well-chosen primary sources and art, the books sport a bright, peppy design. The authors are careful to use or at least make note of proper nomenclature—Maloy uses the phrase "ancient Maya" (rather than simply "Maya") throughout, an important distinction that is often overlooked. These books are rigorous in distinguishing fact from theory, and conscientious about presenting competing theories where they exist. These are the best books on their subjects for this age group.—Paula Willey, Baltimore County Public Library, Towson, MD
