Covering a topic not often seen in a children’s nonfiction collection, this book tells young readers about the terracotta army buried with China’s first emperor, Emperor Qin. It covers early Chinese history and present-day archaeology in a format designed to be both informative and interesting.

I found myself fascinated by this book, and I think young readers will as well. This informational book about the clay soldiers discovered from the Qin dynasty includes both real photographs as well as painted illustrations. It is organized into "chapters" that make it very easy to follow while still presenting information in a more advanced manner.

Picked this book up at the Scholastic Warehouse sale on a whim...and it is FASCINATING!!! Great introduction to the terra cotta soldiers of ancient China but also the history of where they came from and the manaical emperor that had they created. Pictures and "friendly" text makes this a great read for children just starting to really read alone. But I loved it!
