Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy DaPolito
This short introduction to Europe first offers a geographical context by showing a world map highlighting oceans and continents and then focuses on Europe, with a map that identifies its 46 countries. Next comes a map that illustrates Europe's relationship to the North and South Poles and their effect on weather. The following pages briefly discuss the effects of distance from the equator on European climates. The next topic presented is water, and a map of oceans, seas, and rivers illustrates the definition of those terms. Peninsulas and islands are also illustrated and defined, with special attention to volcanic islands. The text then turns to the conditions of mountains and valleys, mentioning the temperature differences between them and a few of the animals that live in them. Forests and tundra are also differentiated, with further distinctions drawn between boreal and temperate forests. A map of major urban areas introduces cities and their historic buildings, followed by a brief mention of smaller towns and villages. Further topics include flowers, natural resources, wine, architecture, football, music, and three landmarks—the Eiffel Tower, the coliseum, and the London Eye—that draw tourists to Europe. The text is followed by a glossary and a brief index. Part of the "Explore the Continents" series, the book is well illustrated with large, colorful maps and photographs. Reviewer: Judy DaPolito
