The Emperor, Who Built the Great Wall Book Review (Tomoson)

I read The Emperor Who Built The Great Wall, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The book was written by Jillian Lin. The book is for early readers. Children, who can read bigger words and longer sentences.

The book is about a young emperor, named Qin (13 years old), who was king of the Qin Dynasty in China. He wanted fame and set about to conquer the other dynasties in China. Qin also became the first emperor of China. He became powerful and strict. The book said Qin melted down weapons and killed people, who broke the law. He also wanted the country to use the same currency and same system of writing.

He also helped build The Great Wall in China. You can read more about Qin and his accomplishments in the book.

The book also has great images, with maps included.

I liked reading the book, more so for myself, than the kids. I would have never thought a 13 year old, would accomplish so much, let alone be given that much power.

At  the end of the book, the author provides extra information about the emperor and China. The book also has a mini quiz.

You can purchase the book on Amazon, using the link above. The book is available in Kindle and Paperback format.
