Rate this:
This beautifully illustrated children's history book spans 2,500 years and more than a thousand miles along China's Grand Canal, a great waterway which joins together two river, the Huai and the Yangtze. With stunning, panoramic illustrations and lively, engaging text, China Through Time brings key periods and turning points in the canal's history to life. Cutaway views show the inside of buildings and introduce children to important places, characters, and events - from humble workers to mighty emperors, and from floods and wars to life in bustling ports and modern cities. Children will also love searching for the mischievous time-travelling cat, Lihua, who appears in each of the artworks.
