Chinese history for kids

Is there a good book for an older kid about the history of China? Or, related questions, other great world history books for kids?

My 10 year old and I are just finishing reading A Little History of the World
out loud, and we both love it, but despite it's greatness, it gives predictably short-shrift to the history of Asia. I'd love to find a book that talks about the the history of China, so she gets a sense of all the political, technological and cultural advances that happened there first.
We'd also be open to a simply-written history for adults. She's a pretty sophisticated/advanced reader.
