Gr 6-9-These titles cover both past and recent history on their respective subjects and give examples from countries all over the world. Why each situation might occur is explored, along with where people go and what happens when they get there. Color maps, charts, and photographs visually represent the texts, and sidebars with personal stories put a human face on the statistical information. Unfortunately, the pages are so cluttered with blocks of text and graphics that it is hard to navigate the books smoothly. Even good readers will have trouble deciding what to look at first. In addition, the "Find out more" and "Further reading" sections are limited and include several other books by this author. These two issues shouldn't necessarily deter librarians from buying the books: real photographs and real stories make them eye-catching, and they are a good start for learning about the movement of people.-Kate McGowen, Topsham Public Library, ME Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
