An Excellent Series for Middle Schools and Libraries
This title, along with many of the other books in the series 'Women's Issues: Global Trends,' is a required addition for any library concerned with promoting gender awareness among teens. The illustrations are beautiful and culturally accurate for each geographical region. Unlike most 'educational' books, this book (and the others in the series), is a visual pleasure as well as a factual storehouse. The design is sophisticated and unique. What's more, the authors skillfully use stories and anecdotes to engage younger readers' sympathies with real-life issues. An appropriate range of issues are covered accurately and sympathetically. What a refreshing change from mere dry facts!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
