Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What's the best place in the world to live? Canada! According to this volume of the "Cultures of the World" series, Canada is finally coming into its own as a vibrant, multicultural country. Too bad the book, in format and writing style, is rather bland. It covers topics from geography (which could benefit from some maps for clarity) and government to festivals and food in straightforward but uninspiring prose and numerous color photos varying from small and adequate to several larger, more striking ones. One odd mistake: a picture captioned as preschool children on a field trip is a repeat of another showing adults having a drink in Vancouver. To its credit, the book contains a chapter on the arts and gives adequate coverage to Canada's indigenous people who, readers will learn, have been granted an Arctic province of their own to govern. In the section titled "Canadians," the author discusses the first peoples and the many immigrants who have changed Canada's face; "Languages" helps clarify the use of two official Canadian languages and their differences from British English and French in France. "Food" stresses the abundance of produce and fresh seafood, as well as the emergence of a more sophisticate cuisine, at least in Toronto and the provinces of Quebec and British Columbia. Unfortunately, the two recipes included consist of fat-rich, empty calories. Although the book impresses mainly as a source for reports, it does contain considerable information and suggests a number of leads for further research. 2004, Benchmark/Marshall Cavendish, Ages 12 to 16.

Gr 5-9-This new edition of a title published in 1994 offers a comprehensive overview of life in the world's second largest country. Pang gives ample attention to all of the elements (historical, geographical, contemporary, and cultural) that combine to define Canada's national identity. The author explains why it is such a desirable place to live (e.g., geographic beauty, social programs) while objectively addressing some of the less positive features, such as the division between French and English Canada as well as the historical and contemporary difficulties of the Native peoples. There is excellent coverage of Canadian arts but no mention of the sport of curling (where Canada is traditionally dominant on the world scale) in the chapter on leisure. Curious, too, is the fact that all of the political leaders listed are members of the Liberal Party. Full-color photos appear throughout, and the maps are current and easy to read. A time line compares developments in Canada to events taking place in the rest of the world. This worthwhile addition stands equally well with Kristi Desaulniers's Canada (Chelsea, 2003) and Eric Braun's Canada in Pictures (Lerner, 2003).-Robyn Walker, Elgin Court Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Gr 7 Up—Previously published under the Benchmark imprint, these third editions are comprehensive geographic profiles with chapters about each country's physical features, history, ethnic groups, culture, religion and languages, economic development, and food and festivals. Revisions include new book and chapter introductions and photos, but text changes are limited to some new paragraphs about recent events or updated statistical information. Authors are positive about each country but discuss problems such as Islamic repression of women and environmental challenges. Well-captioned color photos and maps supplement the texts, and there are Internet links at the end of each chapter. The high level of detail and background information will help report writers understand how geographical factors shaped and define each nation. These books are solid choices for libraries that don't own the second editions, but they haven't been revised enough to justify replacement purchase for those that do.
