Biography From Ancient Civilizations

The perfect classroom supplement for upper elementary through middle school grades where ancient civilizations are part of the social studies curriculum. Each book gives a complete overview of the person's life along with a snapshot of the times in which he or she lived. Told like a novel, each book is fast-moving and filled with information. Biography From Ancient Civilizations is great for the not-so-enthusiastic reader who needs research and report materials. This series fills a gap in library collections between books written for the elementary reader and those written for the avid middle school reader.

School Library Journal, September 2005

On The Life and Times of Buddha and The Life and Times of Moses

Each of these titles offers a fluid and lively retelling of the basic story, including insight into the broader context of the times, an introduction to the teachings of each figure, and a recounting of the "facts" that most believers would assent to. In the case of the Buddha, many American youngsters will have little to no background knowledge and thus Gedney's unified retelling provides a sound place to begin. Both books feature five short chapters, each of which is followed by a one-page "FYInfo" essay about related issues. Illustrations are colorful, with captions that add to the text. Both are attractive and inviting.
