Description


From the Easter Island statues in the South Pacific to the sprawling Great Wall of China, human-made wonders of the world captivate and inspire people worldwide. Introduce young explorers and budding engineers to eight amazing structures with this high-interest set. Vibrant photos and elementary-level text examine each wonder’s significance and history, location, how it was constructed and why. Each book also includes an in-depth look at one key feature.
  The statues of Easter Island, or moai, are some of the world’s most amazing wonders. Carved up to 1,000 years ago, the huge head-shaped stones surrounded by the southern Pacific Ocean speak to the artistic skills of the Rapa Nui people. This elementary-level introduction, filled with vibrant photos and factual text, examines the rock statues and how they were shaped and moved into place. The figures’ significance in history and why they were crafted are also included. A Wonder Spotlight features the island’s Birdman cult. Captions, on-page definitions, additional resources, and an index support young readers.
