Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Though the books in this series seem small, they are packed with information. Each book covers different topics about the given civilization such as daily life, religion, art and architecture and much more. The projects vary with some being rather simple to more complicated activities such as building a model of the Parthenon. I had looked at buying these separately but the book box was a great deal!
