Editorial Reviews


Directions for projects-from how to tie a Gordian Knot to how to make Central Asian Lagman Noodles, are also part of the useful knowledge in this book. "Words to Know," in highlighted text boxes, and maps and illustrations help to make each subject easy to understand. Rating: R* (Highly Recommended) -- South Sound Book Review Council

Kathy Ceceri's The Silk Road blends a wealth of clearly presented information with 20 related projects. ... Utilizing straightforward language, the writing is both lively and accessible, and the book has large-size text and an invitingly open layout. -- School Library Journal

From the Inside Flap

From Roman times until the Age of Exploration, the Silk Road carried goods and ideas across Central Asia between two major centers of civilization, the Mediterranean Sea and China. In The Silk Road: Explore the World’s Most Famous Trade Route, readers ages 9–12 will learn about the history, geography, culture, and people of the Silk Road region.

Marco Polo was just one of many who set out on the Silk Road in search of wealth, power, or knowledge. These adventurers braved vast deserts, towering mountain peaks, warring tribes, and marauding bandits. Silk garments, wool rugs, and fine glass were the prizes for those who survived the trip. Activities using everyday materials bring the Silk Road to life. Young readers will see how ideas in math, science, religion, and art were spread by travelers along with the treasures they found. The Silk Road takes readers on an exciting, interactive adventure to a faraway place and celebrates its important role in human history and development. It also meets common core state standards in language arts for reading informational text and literary nonfiction. Guided Reading Levels and Lexile measurements indicate grade level and text complexity.
