Read-Aloud Thursday

This week we read Great Wall of China by Adele Richardson. It provided a fair amount of information, but it also provided tons of wonderful pictures!

I wish I had stuck to my original plan and covered the 2 chapters on ancient China from Gombrich's A Little History back to back. Alas, I did not. We had already talked a little about the Great Wall and Qin Shi Hwangdi when we covered Confucius, but this week we look at them again in more depth.

This book contains fabulous photos and enough information for a basic report, but it is set up in a 32 page, hardback, picture book layout. It was a really good book to read aloud side by side on the couch.
