Roman Villa (Spectacular Visual Guides)
Grade 4-8-- These oversized British imports feature abundant, full-color illustrations; brief snippets of text; and double-page topic treatments that will appeal to reluctant readers. While focusing on the Parthenon, Macdonald discusses religious customs, sacrifices, games, and gods, all of which had some bearing on the purpose, uses, and decorations of Greek temples. Two chapters focus on the people: those who visited the temples, the workers who built them, and the craftsmen who provided the designs and skilled labor. Morley gives readers a description and brief history of A Roman Villa and provides lots of details about the construction, buildings, furnishings, and lifestyles one might expect to find in Italy around the first century A.D. The type of family that would have inhabited a villa is described, as is a typical day. Oddly, the two chapters on slaves are separated by those on "Vines and Olives" and "Wine and Oil." Overall, however, the organization in both titles is adequate. While most illustrations are informative, a few are too small to be helpful. Two attractive books that present an interesting array of information in short, easily digestible bites.- Rosie Peasley, Empire Union School District, Modesto, CACopyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.
