Marco Polo: History's Great Adventurer by Clint Twist- ADVISABLE.

Marco Polo: History's Great Adventurer (Historical Notebooks), by Clint Twist, 30 pages. NON-FICTION. Templar, 2011. $19.99. 


Book Cover: “The year is 1270, and seventeen-year-old Marco Polo, a merchant’s son, is embarking on one of history’s most important journeys. Marco travels along the Silk Road to medieval China, where he meets the warlord Kublai Khan, discovers a land of riches beyond measure, and changes the world’s understanding of geography forever.” 

This is a great informational book. The information is laid out in scrapbook form, with booklets, foldouts, and maps, envelopes, and more. This is a brilliant way to entice students and get them reading information and facts about this fascinating explorer and time of history.
