Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Karen Sykeny
Countries of the World is a high quality, easy-to-navigate book series which includes titles on many countries around the globe. This series has clear, concise language and highlights, using sidebar "inserts" and "pop-up" circles that have phrases, definitions, or highlights of topics on the page. Historical events, people, and concepts of culture are briefly discussed, providing enough for school reports or general information for travel and history knowledge. Information is organized attractively with layout and graphics giving it a well developed website feel for today's modern students. Every page has images of some kind, like photos, graphs, charts, maps, etc. Chapters are short and broken into only a few major headlined sections. Most chapters cover country topics like visiting, geography, nature, history, people, culture, politics, economics, and modern times. Countries from North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia are available. Both the Australia and Italy volumes reviewed here are identical in style and coverage. Many interesting and unique facts are presented like the origins of the song "Waltzing Matilda" in Australia and the origins of the word "fascism" in Italy among other fun informational tidbits. Overall, this series would be a worthy purchase to update a print collection in any school or public library that provides homework support or wants easy-to-use resources for basic country and travel information.
