The X-Ray Picture Book of Big Buildings in the Ancient World by JoAnne Jessop


The cross-section illustrations in Big Buildings will delight children who want a more detailed understanding of some of the most famous ancient architecture ever constructed. The Great Pyramid, the Parthenon, and Notre Dame are just a few of the structures that are dissected and deconstructed to help explain how they were built. A helpful glossary in the back keeps all the new terms in one convenient place.
