I bought this book for my son at the National Gallery in Washington and have gone on to buy many more in the series. This one is a particular favorite of my now 4 1/2 year old boy. The book unfolds chronologically, from the Great Pyramid through the Colosseum, Notre Dame cathedral, the Tower of London, Versailles, before ending with the Burj Dubai. There are a great many little flaps that offer peeks into the buildings. The commentary is informed but child friendly. It's really aimed at an older kid than my son - there are some images of gladiators, skeletons and ghosts (at the Tower of London) which require explanation parents would rather avoid - but he's enjoyed it since he was 3. In fact, we took a trip to the Guggenheim Museum in New York because we learned about it in the book. Highly recommended.

We actually bought this to replace a copy we had lost. This is a fantastic book - informational but very fun for kids.

These books are some of the best information books ever written. My grankids love this one, in particular.

I've been reading this book with my 4 and 6 year old cousins. They love this book! It has many flaps on each page that hide little facts and a closer look. for example if you open the window it gives you a look at the interior of a specific room or a view how that part of the building looked many years ago. The book teaches facts about famous buildings and their history to young and old.

My 3 year old son doesn't put this book down! He keeps telling us facts he learns from the book and asks to visit the places in the book.
