The Emperor’s Silent Army by Jane O’Connor is an almost unbelievable book about a grand Chinese ruler and his Silent Army. They fought each other for hundreds of years. I would never pick this book up by itself when in a library, but it was such a surprise how much I really enjoyed relearning about the warriors and the Emperor who created them. Read Aloud: This book would be great to do a social studies lesson on.

The Terracotta Army is a collection of terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. It is a form of funerary art buried with the emperor in 210–209 BCE with the purpose of protecting the emperor in his afterlife. The figures, dating from approximately the late third century BCE, were discovered in 1974 by local farmers in Lintong County, outside Xi'an, Shaanxi, China.

The targeted audience of ages 9-12 will thrill with the adventure while simultaneously profiting from their newfound knowledge of China's first Emperor, Qin Shihuang, and his war and burial customs.

The Emperor's Silent Army. I bought it for my grandchildren prior to taking them to Atlanta's( GA) High Museum to view the warriors which are on exhibit there until mid-April. They enjoyed the pictures and couldn't turn pages fast enough. They grasped the information about the life of the emporer, the building of his tomb, the creation of the warriors, and their discovery some 2000 years later. I highly recommend the book for a fairly complete overview. 5 people found this helpful.

Lintong County, People's Republic of China, March 1974Three farmers are digging a well when suddenly their shovels hit something hard. It is a clay head of a mad who stares back at them, open-eyed and amazingly real looking. The farmers have never seen anything like it; neither have the archeologists who arrive and being to uncover more and more pottery men—first dozens, then hundres and eventually thousands! Buried for more than 2,200 years, they are soldiers, life-size as well as life-like, and they stand at attention as if waiting for the command to charge into battle. The only thing missing is their weapons, and soon those are found too—thousands of real bronze swords, daggers, and arrowheads still so sharp they can split a hair.Now, after almost thirty years of ongoing excavation, a buried army of 7,500 terracotta soldiers and horses has emerged. And this site that three farmers accidentally stumbled upon ranks along with the Great Pyramids in Egypt as one of the true wonders of the ancient world.The Emperor's Silent Army features more than forty full-color photos that showcase the terracotta troops. A vivid and engaging text tells all about the army as well as the extraordinary story of the men who commanded its creation—the ruthless and tyrannical first emperor of China.
