Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
France is home to a fascinating history and people. A simple introduction, in the form of short poems, takes the reader on a brief tour of the country. Romantic locations such as Brittany and Versailles are presented side-by-side with a glimpse of some of the great artists and artistic treasures inspired by the culture and countryside of France. The author presents 26 poems, A to Z, and the brief poems focus not only on geographic locations or historical figures, but also highlight the culture and customs most commonly associated with France. The simple poems catalog a topic of France corresponding to the letter offered, but included with the poem is a brief, yet more in depth description of the topic under consideration. Full page illustrations of the topic presented add a romantic twist to the in-depth description accompanied by the brief poems. Included with the text is a link to a website which offers additional information on France, as well as information on all of the countries in this "A to Z" series. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
