Synopsis

Ancient China by Tony Allan

Ancient China provides a comprehensive introduction to the world's oldest living civilization. This useful resource uses maps, documents, and works of art to great effect, complementing the text and making China come alive to young readers. The first section explore China's rich history, focusing on the origins of farming, legendary heroes, key military and political events, the powerful dynasties of early China, and the growth of cities. The second part considers the culture, economy, government, and society of China. Innovations in art, architecture, technology, and medicine are discussed, and the importance of religion and philosophy - including Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism - are also examined in detail. Arranged in appealing double-page spreads, Ancient China provides a sharp look into this great nation.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
