Mesopotamia, by Catherine C. Finan - paperback

"Whether going for a sail or hitting the road on anything with wheels, you may need to thank the people from Mesopotamia. Did you know this ancient civilization inspired and invented a lot of things that we can still find in our modern lives? The Cradle of Civilization brought us board games and astrology, maps and soap, and so much more. But there are some things we may be glad to leave behind in Mesopotamia, such harsh penalties for breaking the law (death!) and an alphabet that included 700 letters (think of that alphabet song!). Discover extreme facts about Mesopotamia in this fun and kooky book"--, Provided by publisher
