Editorial Reviews

"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."
------Kirkus Reviews

"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."
------Multicultural Review

"I found Made in China well worth the attention of elementary school teachers --- it brings the level of information for the early grades up to date."
------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."
------Oakland Tribune
