"An attractive starting point for learning about ancient China."
"A concise history of Chinese thought and creativity, covering not only
scientific ideas and inventions, but religion and philosophy,
government, trade, farming, and more. This book is intriguing, as much
fun to browse as it is to sink into for research."
"A terrific resource for educators or parents. Highly recommended for both the young and older curious reader."
"A highly recommended selection choice for all school and community libraries."
------Children's Book Watch, The Midwest Book Review
"This book is both attractive and intriguing. It should be in the core collection of every elementary school library."
"I found Made in China well worth the attention of elementary school
teachers --- it brings the level of information for the early grades up
------Gary DeCoker, Education About Asia
"Made in China provides . . . lively illustrations and photographs, and
tons of little facts. It focuses on some pretty tough topics, but
manages to whittle them down into easily digestible pieces. It
addresses the whos, whats, whens and wheres of Chinese history. But
more importantly, it also looks at the whys and hows."
