SOTW2: Ch 29 & 30

Chapter 29: African Kingdoms. This chapter gives a short overview of the medieval kingdoms of Ghana, Mali, and Songhai. There are supplementary books out there about figures such as Mansa Musa, but we didn’t read any of them. A lot of them were too wordy. The content was appropriate, but I didn’t want to spend that much time on a picture book that might lose Bean’s interest part way through.

Chapter 30: The Moghul Dynasty. This was a really short chapter for us. I know I could have found more, but I didn’t have the time to delve into research. We read SOTW and several pages from Eyewitness: India that referenced the Moghuls and the Taj Mahal.
