User Comments

This series seems like an effective learning tool to help the young reader understand a specific time and place by allowing them to make choices as someone there. The range of possibilities seems realistically limited to what history tells us. First impressions of this series are very good, based on my reading of Ancient Greece, but this series is priced for education, at almost 30USD each.


The hardback editions of these books are produced for the school and library markets, and are therefore quite expensive. However, paperback and ebook versions can be easily found in places like Amazon at much lower prices.
