    I read this book aloud to my son (age 7) in preparation for our upcoming trip to China, which will include a day at the Great Wall. This is a decent history of China for young readers. It strikes a good balance between amount of information and ease of reading.

    i read this because my special needs son is reading it and i often do that with some of the books he reads. yes, it's for kids, so don't expect anything otherwise. however, i really enjoyed it. i learned some interesting things i didn't already know about the great wall. it was a quick and easy read. my 60 something year old mother saw it sitting on my coffee table and wants to read it as well!


  • Jenna Kilpatrick

    Mostly history wasn't the best book I've ever read.


  • Mckinley

    Lots of facts, and side bars.


  • Nathaniel

    I liked it. I would rate it 4 and 1/2 if I could. It talks about the history of the wall.
