Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 4-7-These lively and visually appealing overviews are simple enough to be used by youngsters who have no background knowledge of either of these cities, and provide enough information to establish a decent understanding of the subjects. Both books have double-page topic treatments that include full-color photographs, reproductions, and lifelike illustrations. Many of the subjects focus on daily life, such as the arts, religion, school, and slavery. While both titles touch on modern events such as the Tiananmen Square shootings in 1989 and a modern-day center established to collect ancient manuscripts in Timbuktu, the majority of these texts focus on the distant past.-Kristen Oravec, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Strongsville, OH Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
