Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Colorful related prints and a judicious use of white space accompany the text so the information seems less dense to a reader/researcher. This is a highly readable and engaging reference book for an upper elementary or even early middle school student. It will be an important addition to upper elementary and possibly middle school libraries to assist student research."

Lane Education Service District, 2008

School Library Journal
Gr 4–7
These colorful books are combination travel guides and language tutorials, with a smattering of history and trivia. They are illustrated with generic cartoon art, and the maps are woefully inadequate, failing to identify any geographical features and omitting numerous places referred to in the texts. There is little of the standard country-book coverage, such as the flag, climate, foods, government, education, regions, and holidays (except for China, which includes the Chinese New Year), and handy "Fast Facts" are randomly scattered throughout. The language material includes pronunciations, but lacks a master vocabulary list. The books' structure results in repetition, and readers are often urged to use the Internet to obtain more information. Children will likely pick these up for browsing, but they are useless for reports. Catherine Bruzzone's French for Children, Italian for Children , and Spanish for Children (all McGraw-Hill, 2003) are quite good books/CD sets for beginning language learners.
