"The Ancient Greeks" introduces children to the people of the ancient Greek world. This is a highly visual resource book, packed with authentic pictures of real Greek places, things and people. It shows at first hand how the people of the ancient Greek city-states lived and worked and the legacy they left for future generations. This attractively designed book illustrates all kinds of ancient Greek people and the objects they made and used. The text describes and explains the images and encourages children to explore the photographs in detail. A special feature is the quotations from ancient Greek sources ranging from the works of historians, philosophers and dramatists to personal letters that allow children to read about the Greeks in their own words. Children will enjoy discovering how the people of ancient Greece lived, worked and played, and at the same time will learn to look critically and carefully at objects and pictures from the past, just as archaeologists do.

From School Library Journal :
Alexandra Villing is a curator of Greek antiquities at the British Museum.
Grade 5-8 Following a map, a time line, and an introduction to the ancient Greeks, 14 chapters focus on a variety of roles, such as priest, soldier, entertainer, and farmer. Within the chapters, several paragraphs highlight different people who did the job, interspersed with text boxes and clear photos that show life through art and artifacts, adding greatly to the narrative. The structure allows for detailed information that provides a broad overview of the society. Primary-source quotes are credited throughout, but other information is not credited. Still, this is a solid, well-constructed introduction with enough information for reports and enough photographs and human-interest material for pleasure reading. Clare A. Dombrowski, Amesbury Public Library, MA
