Behind the Wall of China. Young Discovery Library Series: 42.
This book is part of an international series developed as a collaboration among the author, the illustrator, an advisory group of elementary school teachers and an aademic specialist on the subject. This volume provides in brief and simple terms some facts about the geography, history, and daily life of China. Some of the questions this book seeks to answer are: Why are Chinese houses guarded by animals? Why was the Great Wall built? What foods do the Chinese prefer? When is the Chinese New Year? Additional topics are the peoples of China and regions of the country, the Great Wall, famous cities, Chinese writing, and the Chinese zodiac. Profuse colored illustrations include a simple map. (DB)
