Where else could you find a short biography of Clara Barton, the story of the Pledge of Allegiance, state symbols, and the origination of Smokey the Bear? The American Reader has something for everyone: poetry, short stories, concise information, and lovely illustrations. Did you know it took Noah Webster 27 years to write the first American Dictionary? Or, that Amerigo Vespucci once studied under Michelangelo? This delightful treasury of tales contains fun tidbits for everyone.

The stories of ancient Egypt are full of mystery, strange events, humor, and adventure. In this book, you will discover nine of the most important Egyptian myths and legends, ranging from Ra creating the earth and sky to the story of Cleopatra, Egypt's last pharaoh. If you like comics and graphic novels, this is a great choice for you as well, since most of the book is written and drawn like a graphic novel.

This book is from the Life Long Ago series from Weekly Reader, and explores the culture of Ancient Rome. Once, people thought that Rome was founded by the twin sons, Romulus and Remus, of Mars, the Roman god of war. Romulus killed his brother so that he could be king. At its most powerful, the Roman Empire stretched from Europe to Asia, and included parts of Africa. Most boys studied to become soldiers. Even with this warlike beginning, Romans believed in education, and founded a republic that was emulated by the founding fathers of the United States of America. Did you know that the early Romans were also responsible for indoor plumbing, and that our system of writing is based on the letters of their alphabet?

Andrew Zimmern, host of the Travel Channel show Bizarre Foods, chronicles many of the places in the world that he has gone to. Would you try eating boa constrictor, baby sparrows, or guinea pig? Andrew has and describes how it was to eat these and other foods that you and I might consider bizarre. This book is filled with interesting stories of different countries and food experiences that Andrew has had.
