Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is an excellent resource book about the country of Brazil and would make an outstanding addition to any library or classroom. The layout is simple to follow and the pictures are bright and colorful. The front offers a table of contents for a quick location of a specific topic. The back of the book includes additional resources, important dates, a glossary and much more. There are several other books in this series and I would highly recommend purchasing the entire set. Getting a student excited about writing a report isn't always easy, but these books are sure to help ease the process along. Part of the "First Reports¾Countries" series. 2001, Compass Point Books, $21.26. Ages 8 to12. Reviewer: Sharon Tolle
