The Ancient Chinese
The ancient Chinese—the civilization that invented the compass, gunpowder, and paper, among other things—is incredibly rich in tradition and history. Readers will celebrate many facets of ancient Chinese culture, including its arts, foods, philosophies, and architecture through their reading of this educational volume. The beauty of Chinese calligraphy, sculpture, and painting is undeniable as presented in striking photographs throughout the text. Readers are invited to reproduce important Chinese symbols, such as lanterns and dragons, in the step-by-step art projects featured within. Other highlights include the fascinating beliefs of Chinese philosophers such as Confucius, as well as some fun Chinese puzzles and games that are still played today.
