Who Was Genghis Khan? by Nico Medina
I am Thijs. I enjoy reading (maybe a little too much) and being outdoors. I have a younger brother and my favorite dessert is root beer floats.
Who Was Genghis Khan is a wonderful, non-fiction, interesting read. Most people know very little of this man because America does not teach a lot about Asian and African countries. We mostly focus on ourselves, the European, and South American countries. The reasons for this are that we mostly came from European, and South American countries and a little from all the other counties. If you enjoy WhoHQ books this is a great one. If this is your first one then you should try some other ones in the series as well. This book will take you through Genghis Khan’s life from birth to death as you learn all there is to learn about him. It tells you every little fact, so if you just love history then this WhoHQ series is just right for you!
The book starts with Genghis Khan’s early childhood, which usually ranges from birth to 12 years of age. When he was young, he had a very hard life. His family was banished from their clan. They survived off scraps for years till they finally found a clan that took them in. Genghis was a natural fighter and was quickly moved up to higher ranks. But how could he ever defeat the Chinese Empire and become the ruler of the biggest empire ever created?
Check it out at The Community Library or buy it at a local bookstore. Do not forget that the WhoHQ series has several other books about other key people and events in history.
