A solid "spine" selection on Ancient China. Like other books in this series, this work effectively uses photographs of artifacts, sculpture and landscaping to give the reader a 'feel' for the subject matter and prevent the pages from becoming too text heavy. This work also featured a couple of helpful maps and several full page numbered line drawings (with paragraphs to explain each number), a particular favorite of my student.

There is a bit of repetition, but I feel that reinforces main points

A good primer for the 7-11 year old set on ancient China. Despite its title, I would have like to see a bit more attention to everyday man but even I gleaned a bit of new knowledge from it and I have a Masters so... Good book to add to a public library or home-school collection.
