Show kids where "tablets" really come from! :)

I love this book, and not just because it's about my people!

Jil Fine wrote this for the PowerKids Press Reading Power series, which takes high-density subjects and presents information in a length and format that is manageable for kids that find reading a challenge.

It's a great little book at just under 500 words, and full of clear pictures of the amazing artifacts early Mesopotamians left behind.
