“Entertaining and Educational”
With the help of a magical shovel, siblings Bubba and Squirt find themselves in China among the Terracotta Warriors and paranormal activity!
This is an entertaining, fast-paced read that will keep children engaged—it’s the perfect length, and wraps up satisfactorily, leaving room for more down the road. Educational content is well interspersed with action and well voiced characters perfectly rooted in their age. I personally love tales involving magic and the paranormal, and accurate historical content is always a plus.
The addition of a glossary of some Chinese words, numbers and names, as well as a Chinese dumpling recipe is fun and helpful. Kids will have fun practicing some pronunciation and maybe even helping mom and dad whip up some dumplings!
