Famous Figures of Ancient Times (Juvenile Non-Fiction)

Released April 2009

Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth

My daughter loves craft projects, but the two younger girls staying with me during the day are not always quite as avid. FAMOUS FIGURES OF ANCIENT TIMES proved to be a huge success with all three. With coloring, cutting and assembling tasks in front of them, the girls spent hours creating their movable figures. This book is a must-have for any daycare owner, teacher or parent with craft-oriented kids.

FAMOUS FIGURES OF ANCIENT TIMES is a coloring book/paper doll type book rolled into one. Durable paper figures represent some of history's biggest figures, including Jesus, Moses, Nebuchadnezzar II, Hannibal, Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great and Constantine. Each cut out figure comes on two pages, the first page is printed in bold colors, but the second page requires the child to color the figure. From here, you cut out the figures, use a hole punch to remove the holes and then assemble them with brass fasteners.

There are 20 figures in all and with two pages for each figure, there are 40 assembled movable figures when the children have completed each page. From here they can let their imagination run wild as they play with them.
