Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why do humans build? Perhaps it's because we don't like living in caves. In the early days, a long, long time ago, we built walls around our homes and towns to keep out our enemies. As society advanced, rich and powerful people flaunted their wealth by building expensive palaces and monuments. Builders of the Past looks at the buildings man has constructed from the Stone Age to the last century. This is a large format picture book aimed at children in the 8-14 years age group. The focus is on educating children. It is the latest book in a series on the environment and the world we live in.

Synopsis:

Why were the pyramids built? What is a flying buttress? Where is the Temple of the Sun and who worshipped in it? Why were stores built on a bridge in Florence? In what dynasty was the Great Wall of China built? Builders of the Past answers these and many more on why humans build the structures we do.
