Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Renee Biermann
This book combines content areas nicely by introducing Egypt through discussion of colors. Social studies topics are explored in a detailed account of the geographic locations of Egypt and its main waterways. Readers will learn about the markets, food, clothing, traditions, and cities through explanations of their importance or uses, supplemented by vivid photographs. Each page focuses on a particular color, making the text a good teaching tool for classification or sorting. Teachers would benefit from using this book in combination with a large classroom map of the region. The book contains useful information at its end, including facts about Egypt, common phrases in English and Arabic, a map, a picture of the Egyptian flag, information about Egyptian money, a glossary, a reading list, and a list of recommended Internet sites. Books about regional areas can often be dry and boring. This book adds life to the topic in a new, refreshing and colorful way. It is part of the A+ Books "World of Colors" series, which includes titles about Australia, China, Egypt, Guatemala, Kenya, and Mexico. Reviewer: Renee Biermann
