    1. We covered geography and history, as well as some arts, crafts and science, as we read this in our home school 3 different times over the last couple of decades.

    2. Tells how and why Polo began his journey. Then tells of some of the wonders he saw. Many activities for kids plus explanations of society, religions, and animals seen on his travels.Very informative and entertaining. We'll see what the students think of it.
