Overview

A trip across the United Kingdom touches on British history, from Stonehenge to modern London, and from Shakespeare's theater to the Beatles' concerts. Titles in Barron's growing Find Out About series take young readers on delightful tours through countries around the world with vivid descriptions of the land, its history, and its people. A simplified but geographically accurate map of the title country opens up on a gatefold page flap, showing major cities and geographical features. Accompanying the map are facts about the country's area, population, important rivers, and its location on the globe. Each book's four separate sections have different color page tabs to mark the divisions. The four parts are—

  • An introduction—facts and figures, highlights of major cities, favorite pastimes of the people
  • Life in the title country—children at home, at school, and at play, and the grown-ups' major occupations and industries
  • Facts about the country—its history, its famous people, and its landmarks
  • Have a nice day— exciting things to see and do when touring the country

• Countries are described from a young reader's point of view, and pages are filled with color illustrations. Each book presents an appealing introduction to its title country, offering interesting facts that describe its people and their culture. Books in this series are as entertaining as they are informative, and make fine supplements to textbooks in elementary social studies classes.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-7

A handy introduction to the history and culture of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. A fictional family, the Taylors, serve as guides, and their lives and experiences are used to introduce topics such as how the British spend their leisure time and what constitutes a traditional English breakfast. Despite the initial effort to give equal time to each of the four countries, the focus is primarily on England-for example, the list of "Brilliant Britons" is almost entirely made up of English luminaries, with Robert the Bruce being an exception. The book is spiral bound with tabs for each chapter, much like a Filofax. This is a fun and handy way to flip through it, although the tabs are numbered instead of labeled. Appealing illustrations and speech bubbles keep the tone light and fun. There is no bibliography. Web addresses appear along the bottoms of the pages but they are a bit touristy and at least one is printed incorrectly. All in all, this is an appealing and informative guide for youngsters preparing to visit the UK.-Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA
