As they cross the moat into the castle's gatehouse or ride the elevator to the top of a skyscraper, students will get an up close and inside look at structures with historical and cultural significance. Simple sentences and clear photos reveal the unique architecture, construction, and interiors of each building and describe their practical purposes. Each book opens with a labeled cross-section illustration of the featured structure.
