Booklist Review: "The Seven Wonders of the Modern World series (7 titles) transports readers to significant world heritage sites around the globe. The double-page spreads typically feature two large, colorful illustrations as well as a space set aside for the main text. Addressing readers directly, the writer in each book guides them through the experience of visiting the featured site, while presenting its history along with interesting sidelights. The Taj Mahal, besides presenting the iconic structure's history and its beauty, discusses current concerns about environmental threats to the building and the search for potential solutions. Maps, time lines, and sidebars offer quick access to relevant facts. Chosen from different sources, the many colorful photos are the most memorable part of each book. Useful for young researchers and intriguing for stay-at-home travelers, this attractive series introduces seven unique "wonders.""
