    Engaging text and colorful illustrations bring alive the adventures of Marco Polo A nice text to bring from Western Civilization to the Far East though you need to supplement that journey with other accounts of Chinese history Remember that this was the Mongol kingdom in China considered foreign invaders but we can use this an opportunity to learn about the rich story Chinese history up to this time as Polo would have done when he encountered AsiaAt the end the authors point out that Marco Polo's book was shown to contain a significant number of tall tales and that people of his time largely considered him a liar Hmmm we used this as an opportunity to consider that maybe not everything we read in print is accurate Anyone teaching this book should be aware of this 'twist' in order to help students comprehend itSome uestions are How do we know something is true? Why study Marco Polo and his account of his travels if we know Polo was a liar? What impact did his writing have on Western Europe? How was that changed by his reputation? Are all explorers or writers for that matter truthful?The I thought about it this is a worthy discussion After all today we have Angela's Ashes and other biography autobiography memoirs that are enhanced for public consumption It makes you think Marco Polo was ahead of his time

    Before reading this I really couldn't tell you anything about Marco Polo other than he was a famous explorer and there is a fun pool time activity named after him This book really illustrated how removed and isolated China was at the time from the rest of the world; causing wild myths to spread about their people and culture Also covered are some of the animals geography and hardships that the Polo’s faced on their lengthy journey A nice addition to any elementarymiddle school classroom or library
