Synopsis

Countries of the World China by Jen Green

From the building of the Great Wall as a means to ward off enemies to the Cultural Revolution, China has gone through many changes. The people of China continue the traditions of their past and are moving toward the future. The country has gone from an isolated nation to a land that welcomes tourism. Features of the series include: main chapters that focus on geography, people and culture, history, government and economy, and nature; 'At a Glance' double spreads to present a maximum amount of information in a minimal amount of space, utilizing charts, tables, time lines, and other highly visual elements; and, full-page maps that highlight physical features, vegetation and ecosystems, history, population, and political organization. As a bonus, every photograph within each chapter is tied to a location on the main map for that chapter. Smaller maps zoom in on special topics, such as migration, rainfall, changing borders, resources, industry, and other important themes. This book includes: special feature sidebars that introduce intriguing people, places, and events; a glossary to aid in comprehension of unfamiliar terms; and, an extensive bibliography that lists books, National Geographic articles, and Web sites.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

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.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

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