These books on archaeology for kids are perfect for ancient world history lessons or for adding a little history to your story time. Kids love these types of books. Adults sometimes think that since children are still developing a sense of history and the passage of time, they can't really appreciate the heart of what archaeology is. But...they love it. They 'get' the joy of discovery aspect more than adults do, and do understand that the stuff is 'old.'
We'd like to expand this list, so if you know of some good books on archaeology for kids, please do let us know! We love book recommendations.
