Still fun. And good grief, China had so many inventions while Europeans were still figuring out iron.

This is a lengthy picture book adventure of three siblings who accidentally travel back in time to ancient China, during the Han dynasty. While there the youngest child wonders off in a noble’s cart and the twins are forced to slowly follow behind in search of her. Along the way they experience and learn much about ancient Chinese culture, but not before finding themselves in series trouble. Can they reunite with their sister and return home?

We started this book today as part of our China study. All the boys were enthralled and a bit disappointed when I only read half of it. It's part cartoon, part factual/historical information at the bottom. We'll see how it goes.....

We finished this a while ago, sorry for the delay. They continued to love this book and we learned a bit about China. It didn't go into depth (each subject received a few paragraphs) but it did give enough for the younger boys. For older kids you'd need more.

This book is about the disappearance of Libby, which leads to an examination of farming, food, family life, medicine, religion, government, transportation and culture that is both entertaining and educational.

I was born and grew up in Winnipeg —a daydreamer with her nose in a book. In my twenties, I traveled around the world, mostly by ship.
