The whole idea is

by -

The whole idea is great.I haven't been able to deliver to my grand daughters yet or to see how they respond but my daughter in law is a grade school teacher also so I think it might be a great teaching tool.

Awesome! Kids need to

Awesome! Kids need to be in grade school at least...maybe middle school.

We all loved this

by -

We all loved this unusual book! The concept was very different and unique taking a walk through the same village as it evolves through centuries of growth and technology. It was truly amazing to see, and the artwork was just fabulous. It was suitable for children from very young to teenagers. Even the adult parents enjoyed it, and it extremely educational, too. Thank you for such a wonderful journey.

This is the kind

by -

This is the kind of book that we have come to expect from Chinaberry -- engaging, fascinating, and intriguing. The illustrations are wonderful and dense. It gave rise to a discussion about the impermanence of communities and buildings that opened the minds of our children. The look of amazement on their faces as they understood the concept was awesome!This was an idea they had never considered before! Thank you, Chinaberry, for another excellent suggestion!

It is an entertaining

by -

It is an entertaining book for one or more. I love it for Sunday afternoons when the house is quiet and I can linger until somebodywakes up. The book is very sturdy but also a little bigfor one to hold alone. Perfect for snuggling and sharing!

My almost-7-yo son adores

My almost-7-yo son adores this book.He has learned a lot from it, as well!He is an advanced reader and loves history.I would warn parents that it discusses things like the plague and talks of people dying - sensitive children might be scared.

We bought this to

We bought this to give to our grandson for Christmas, but after my husband saw it, he decided to keep it himself--for awhile! It's fun to watch him pouring over the pages.

Very interesting for 10 year old...

Every page is full

by -

Every page can handle lots of time, lots of discovery and lots of further discussion and learning. Fascinating for lots of ages.

Even if you know history, you will learn quite a bit about the world you live in and what has come before.

In such a concise and understandable way this book presents a detailed and fascinating account of the forward movement of culture and civilization. I encourage you to view it with a magnifying glass because you do not want to miss any aspect of the beautiful artwork. I love, casually, having the book out and watching friends slowly getting engaged and lost in the book. What an amazing find.
