This book gives a great overview of the three ancient civilizations it covers. I bought this book for the section on the Phonecians and was not disappointed. It is well written and kept my six year old interested. It's also very informative and includes instructions for crafts and activities if you have a child that likes hands on learning. A great addition to your child's ancient history library. Reading level is probably around 5th grade, but younger kids will enjoy this book too.
