History in Stone Series Book Review

History in Stone Series Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Check out Kidzworlds book review on the History in Stone series. Well tell you how you too can build your very own Roman Colosseum, Egyptian Temple of Ramses III and Parthenon of ancient Greece.

Ancient Greece by Stewart Ross
Ancient Rome - by Sarah Eason
Ancient Egypt - by Andrew Langley

Ever wonder how long it took to build the Colosseum in ancient Rome? It took me all of ten minutes! And it took me even less time to build the Parthenon of ancient Greece, with just one hand. How about the equally ancient Egyptian Temple of Ramses III? Well, that took a little longer. I started to get a nasty hieroglyphics cramp. Ok, so maybe these masterpieces aren't actual size, but they are fantastic miniature replicas.


Inside the Books

You too can start building when you pick up any of the books in the series History In Stone. Each book explains who these ancient dudes were and what their worlds would have been like. From a day in the life - like what they would eat, drink, wear and think - to the over the top temples, shrines, sculptures and pyramids that they built for their gods and goddesses.


The Bottom Line

The books are filled with beautiful photos and illustrations as well as just enough info to make you smart without making you feel like you're learning anything. Plus it comes with a cool toy! It's like going to the dentist except there's no pain and your mouth is full of new words and ideas, not nasty metal or fluoride!

    Aww, this is so sweet :3 I'm a day late, because when @Mermaid_Author14  sent me this it was night time for me. Happy belated birthday @SnowflakeAngelKitten  !!!! I love roleplaying with you because you make things so fun and exciting! Your excitement also reminds me of a younger version of myself. Welllll.. I'm still like that but I don't show that side of me much XD Maybe it's because of the timezones that we haven't been able to talk much, but who cares? I hope you enjoyed your day because you deserved to (: May this year hold lots of chances for you to fangirl since you love it so much! :3

    Love it or hate it, the crazy theory of Flat Earth is gaining a lot of popularity and movement world wide. What's your opinion? Remember, regardless of what anyone says, keep an open mind and don't bash. I'm curious to see why people believe the way they do, or if they have facts and evidence to support their claims. So, do you believe the Earth is flat....or spherical?

    No, AlphaT won't be missed. And he totally isn't tearing up right now.  Thank you. I know it sounds unoriginal, but getting to know all of you has been an absolute privilege. Each of you made my time here worthwhile, and it's nice knowing that I've done the same for you all.  Goodbye!
