“Cerocchi’s pleasant gouache and pastel illustrations will attract younger readers” – School Library Journal

“One of the best features of the book is that before you dive into the facts they invite you to ‘enter’ into the site as if you were on a tour! What a great way to bring in some of the aspects of the experience you would’ve gotten in-person” – Youth Services Book Review

“The landscapes and the architecture have a majestic quality that draws the reader in. It creates a feeling of awe at the incredible landmarks around the world and the accomplishments of previous cultures” – Books for MKs
