In her historical activity book, Marco Polo for Kids: His Marvelous Journey to China, 21 Activities, Janis Herbert chronicles the famous explorer's travels along the "Silk Road" to the palace of the Kublai Khan. Projects feature the various cultures that he experienced. For example, kids can make a mandala (a Tibetan circular sand painting that symbolizes the circle of life) and play "Eagle and Chicks," a Chinese game. Archival artwork and prints add to the handsome volume.
