When we finished it, my lad's response was "AW, we're finished it? But I liked that book!" I need to find another we can read.
The question remains. Why did we like reading this book? What made it a joy to read?
Along with that came good text, explaining where people came from, what changes they made, how long they stayed in power and why sometimes countries fell again.
Each page came with a global image, to help with the "where it was the world". This helped as we moved from section to section, and gave an opportunity for me to say so we just finished the section here, now we are moving over here. Gave a good distinction for us.
It was fascinating to learn how some cultures simply vanished. They were there one day and then it was as if they simply weren't. AND there are no explanations as to why that happened.
Cultures and people, as varied as the land that makes up this wonderful world that we live in.
My search is on to find another book that will intrigue us as much.
Do you have any suggestions for us?
