Clever! Imaginative! Entertaining! The author artfully makes us feel as though we are a merchant traveling along the Silk Road--an ancient trade route between China and the Mediterranean Sea--with her treasure trove of easy-to-follow text, maps, pictures, definitions, trivia, foreign words, time charts, etc. 9-12 year olds will love this. Congratulations to Kathy Ceceri for gifting a book that allows students to take a field trip that doesn't have to leave the classroom to be fun!

This book is a great supplement to Story of the World or a study of world history that we stumbled on by accident at the library. It had 20 great activities to do with children. We did 2 of them and enjoyed them very much! The text is concise; good for short periods of read aloud time to children.
