If I Were a Kid in Ancient China: Children of the Ancient World (Children of the Ancient World) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

What modern boy or girl wouldnt want to be called “Precious Child,” as parents in ancient China referred to their children? Or wear a beautiful silk brocade jacket, as wealthy youngsters did? Or nibble on a crunchy roasted cricket? This fun book explores every aspect of life for Chinese children “way back when,” from distinctive toys like a live “pet” dragonfly to hand-made lesson books to shopping at the exciting markets or strolling down the Silk Road in search of treasures. Vivid illustrations, detailed historical background, and a glossary bring this intriguing time to life for young readers.
