"Travel Through: China is geared towards the elementary aged child but could easily be read aloud or used as a picture book for younger children. Beautiful photographs make you feel as if you are right there [in China]. The layout of the pages is very visually appealing with just enough information included that it will not overwhelm children with focusing problems. Also, the font size is large and in a style that is kid friendly.
The book covers many topics such as geography, culture, animals, environment, exports, and much more. In addition to facts included on many of the pages, there are also pretend journal entries and emails from a child that lives in China. This helps to make it more realistic for children and feel as if they are there experiencing it themselves. There is a list of twenty activities at the end of the book to extend the learning of many of the different topics covered.
