Communication in the Ancient World

“Attractive and focused, this entry in the Life in the Ancient World series neatly covers a topic that will be of interest to kids. The survey examines written communication and record keeping in early civilizations...Each culture gets a two-page spread that looks at topics such as spoken language, writing systems, legends and stories, calendars, and counting methods. The large format, crisp typeface, and interesting artwork add appeal. Browsers and researchers will learn a lot here.” —Booklist, 09/11
