Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
This is another book in the series called "Global Questions." The text covers forty-three pages and in addition there is a glossary, bibliography, web pages for collecting more information, and an index. Photos provide detailed captions directly related to the book. Many sidebars, titled "Expert View," "Forum," and "Focus" add interesting information. On page 20, two opinions are presented under the "Forum" heading concerning the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States. The discussion question asks, "Heroes or cowards-what do you think?" "Focus," on page 29, relates Mary Balikungeri's experience during the genocide of 1994 in Rowanda. Different views about the suffragette revolt are quoted on page 12 under the "Expert View" heading. As recommended by the publisher, this series is designed for use by grades six and up. The issue is complex, so younger students will need the assistance of an adult. If information is needed and budget allows, buy this title for the collection. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
