KIRKUS REVIEW

Another in the series containing The Pilgrims Knew and The Indians Knew, the young reader is introduced here to the skills of the ancient Chinese. Illustrated in brightly colored pictures by Ezra Jack Keats, the Chinese techniques of making porcelain, paper, ink, block prints and clocks are described as well as their method of counting with the abacus. These devices are further correlated with modern Western techniques and simplified forms of each device are suggested as home laboratory experiments.
