Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
MacDonald has artfully and concisely provided a brief view of clothing and accessories that are worn around the world and throughout history. Beginning with a basic explanation of why clothes are worn, MacDonald samples fashionable clothing, religious clothing, footwear and uniforms. An overview is given of the types of jewelry worn by people all over the world, as well as hairstyles, hats, body decorations and celebrations and ceremonies that use special jewelry and clothing. Each section is fully illustrated and provides examples from history and worldwide cultures. All illustrations are full color and provide fascinating glimpses into cultures that would not normally be previewed except in special circumstances. An index and a glossary are included, and glossary terms are highlighted throughout the text. Part of the "Discovering World Cultures" series. 2001, Crabtree, $21.28 and $8.95. Ages 5 to 12. Reviewer:Danielle Williams
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-These titles cover an array of topically arranged information compacted into a simple, accessible format. Each subject receives two pages filled with numerous full-color illustrations and brief captions. Clothing discusses fashion, footwear, accessories, religious dress, and more. A typical section displays numerous items and explains who wore what, when, and why. For example, the caption beneath a thaali states, "Many married women in southern India wear a necklace like this-which reveals details about their family history and their social status." Music treats such topics as technology, instruments, performances, and folk music. The technology segment includes pictures of a phonograph, jukebox, and CD, and concludes with music available due to MP3, "a way of storing music, that makes it easy to send over the internet." The extravagant number of illustrations and their wide-ranging scope are these titles' strengths. Indeed, the books are almost limited by their extensive coverage, but they do provide starting points for research.-Laura Glaser, Euless Junior High School, TX Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
