Forbidden City

Bearport Publishing has produced Forbidden City: China’s Imperial Palace as part of their Castles, Palaces & Tombs series. 32 pages, reinforced library binding, written at a third grade reading level but of interest to grades 2-7. 

With 100 words or less on each two-page spread this title meets the needs of my elementary students and I’ll be sharing this as part of my Olympic Unit on China.

I wrote about this title as part of my post on the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, but I decided that I wasn’t able to tell you enough to satisfy myself so I’m going to share more here.
