Children's LiteratureSammy Sousa, sugarcane and sea turtles are just a few of the amazing things about the Dominican Republic. This well-written book explores the history, natural history, geography, politics, religion, the role of women, and even how the Dominican people play a role in the USA. The book has vivid photographs, maps, and an "at-a-glance" page that includes the capital, population, major lakes, and examples of currency. There is also a glossary, a list of Dominican words, and lists of related books, videos and websites. The publisher gives permission to photocopy a specific map for classroom use. The language seems too complex for the recommended ages, but this is an excellent resource for the classroom or library. It's part of the "Countries of the World" series. 2004, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 12 to 17.
