    One thought on “The Buried City of Pompeii”

    1. When I was a little girl my mom had this set of books that were about historical disasters like the Titanic, Hindenburg and Pompeii. I literally read these books all the time. I loved them all but my favorite was about Pompeii and I dreamed of the day I would get to visit that ancient city.In 2011 my dreams came true and I visited Pompeii. It was even more spectacular than I had ever dreamed of. My heart ached for the people that died and I can't imagine the horror that the whole village experie [...]

    2. I have always been fascinated by the city of Pompeii, an ancient Roman city preserved at a moment in history because it was buried in volcanic ash. I remember wondering what archaeologists of the future would learn about my life if some disaster preserved my home and town, only to be rediscovered centuries later. Shelley Tanaka brings the story of the ancient city and the modern archaeological site to life in The Buried City of Pompeii (A Hyperian/Madison Press Book 1997). One of the bodies disc [...]

    3. Having had the privilege of seeing Pompeii firsthand as a child (thanks to living the nomadic life of an Army brat whose dad was stationed for three years in Germany), I became enraptured with the horrific outcome of the sleepy Italian villa at an early age. After bringing my own children to a local museum showcasing many of the artifacts and reproductions of the casts, I am convinced that this fascinating portion of history holds a great deal of appeal to young readers. The Buried City of Pompe [...]

    4. Tanaka creates fictional characters based on discoveries archaeologists made of a luxurious house in the ruins of Pompeii. The tale of Eros the steward and his young daughter on that fateful day in A.D. 79 when Vesuvius erupted is woven around details of the actual artifacts uncovered. Modern photographs and artists recreations are presented to give the reader an understanding of the science behind the story. A glossary of terms and recommendations for further reading make this book a springboar [...]

    5. I have long been fascinated by Pompeii In light of this, I seek out books about the tragedy. This children's book is my latest find. I liked this one a lot! I enjoyed the pictures and the "what might have happened" side story about a caretaker in a prominent house in the town. She ficitionalized a possible account based on evidence and records. I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in pompeii!

    6. An excellent introduction to Pompeii. My children have loved reading this since they were old enough to understand the significance of this ancient city and have now started to read it to their younger siblings!

    7. A fabulous look back at what life was like in Pompeii around the time of the eruption. The kids loved the story of Eros the head servant and his young daughter. The mix of history and fiction, illustrations and pictures of Pompeii made this book a huge hit and a great learning tool.
