Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Welsh
In this installment of the "Landmark Top Tens" series, readers are introduced to the must-see palaces of the world. You are invited to take a trip around the world without leaving your seat! Your travels begin in China and include a tour of palaces in France, London, Spain, Monaco, Tibet, Turkey, Greece, Russia, and Syria. Brave the Forbidden City in China to get to the largest palace complex in the world. No one gets their head cut off in King Louis XIV's old palace, but you can check out the place where it used to happen. Visit the palace built by the Dalai Lama and the amazing palace built entirely of ice in Russia. Check out astonishing throne rooms and museums within the palace walls. Large, colorful photographs accompany the text. The photos take up more space than the text, which will encourage struggling and reluctant readers to read independently. Other highly visual and helpful nonfiction text features include statistics boxes for each palace, maps, fun fact bubbles, and an index. The vocabulary is appropriate for third- or fourth-graders, and more challenging words are in bold throughout the text so that readers may look them up in the glossary. Companion book titles and websites are provided in the back of the book for readers wishing to further explore palaces and make connections to their learning. Reviewer: Heather Welsh
