This interesting book is about much more than the largest library in the ancient world. Alexander the Great planned the city which would bear his name in Egypt; his successor respected knowledge and learning, and the library soon attracted scholars from all over the world. Books, scrolls, and maps were collected, purchased, and stolen. Learn how scrolls were made out of papyrus; parchment was made and stapled for a codex. Scientists in Alexandria made revolutionary discoveries that would not be matched for 2,000 years! The rise of the Roman Empire marked the beginning of the end of this great library. This interesting book includes maps, a glossary and more.

This is from the 'Picture the Past' series. It talks about Ellis Island, all 36 buildings, and the people who passed through on their way to the United States. Short, 2-page chapters examine each step an immigrant went through. Photographs from the time period (1892 - 1924) help show us this port of entry to our country for over 12 million people. Almost half the people who live in the United States today have relatives who passed through Ellis Island. My grandparents did!
