Reviews

The Teacher Bookworm

"This is a fantastic non-fiction book which is packed with so much information about a range of topics ... Full of incredible illustrations which depict the great treasures of the world."

Hailey, age 8, Kids' BookBuzz

"I like that this book is filled with so many cool, short stories. I get to pick a vacation spot with my parents when I am older and I might use this to start the planning process. I think it would be neat to go on a treasure hunt. The map in the middle makes it really cool to think about this! I have some treasures of my own and I like that this book defines a treasure as anything that is important or valuable to someone."

Midwest Book Review

“Young readers ages 7-11 will thoroughly enjoy discovering sunken wrecks loaded with pirate gold, the abandoned tombs of the world's most powerful rulers, and even meteorites, and even treasures from outer space!”

Juno Magazine

"This is a fantastic snapshot of what is fascinating in our world."

Alyssa Annico, School Library Journal

"An illuminating international treasure hunt sure to invite repeat perusals; a welcome addition to nonfiction collections."

Kirkus Reviews

"A trove of wonders natural and otherwise, from fabled caches to jaw-dropping sites and sights. Long defines treasure broadly enough to include not only assorted glittering gems and golden hoards, but the Great Barrier Reef, moon rocks, and the lost library of Alexandria. ... There is also a world map on the center spread that serves as a supplemental index."
