Meet the Author

Born in Rochester, Minnesota, Alison Behnke had the good fortune to live in Rome, Italy, for three years while in grade school. Not only did this move expand her horizons enormously and introduce her to one of the world's best and most beautiful cities, but it provided her with a wealth of writing material. Even before her Roman holiday, however, she knew that she wanted to be an author—a desire which, according to her parents, she first voiced around age six. Good teachers, avid reading, and a children's librarian for a mother all fed the fire. She went on to take a degree in English with a focus on Creative Writing, and at present count she has written more than thirty books. Behnke live in Minneapolis, and when she's neither reading nor writing, she spends her time on pursuits including photography, travel, and striving to make the perfect espresso.

    An excellent, clear and concise overview

    France was once a monarchy, but by the end of the French Revolution a republic had been born. The French Republic, as it officially is known, is not a large country and only "covers an area of 211,209 square miles." If you glance at the simple map provided in this book you can see that "most of France's borders run along natural barriers formed by mountains or water." The most striking topographical features are its high mountainous borders, the French Alps and the Pyrénées. In addition to learning about the mountains, you'll get a glimpse at the rivers, you'll learn about the amazing "human-made" canals linking them together, you'll learn about the climate, the flora and fauna, its limited natural resources, environmental challenges, and you'll briefly visit its major cities. Roman Catholicism is the main religion of the country, but one interesting fact that few realize is that Islam is its second largest religion. Religious holidays and festivals are discussed as is the fact that "religion has been an issue of tension and debate in modern France." A swing through its literary heritage begins with its "earliest poets" who were "wandering minstrels" to such contemporary writers as Gao Xingjian. Its rich legacy of art and architecture started during the Renaissance and exploded in the late 1800s making Paris "an international center of painting." Naturally when we think "architecture" we visualize the Eiffel Tower, but there are also buildings of note such as the Arab World Institute in Paris. You'll also get to take a look at music, the performing arts, film, foods (including a recipe for chocolate mousse), sports, leisure activities, the economy, and you'll learn many other interesting facets of this country. This book can stand alone, but once the information is on the publisher's website there will be additional links to the land, the people, cultural life, teacher resources, and links to things such as video clips. There will be photographs, maps, and a flag that can be downloaded for reports. There are instructions on how to print images, how to create an outline for a report, report writing tips, and instructions on how to write a bibliography. The site can be accessed by any student who needs a "homework helper." I was quite impressed with this book and can certainly see it as a stepping stone to a school report in the homeschool or classroom setting. There are numerous photographs, art reproductions, a map, and informative sidebars throughout the text. In the back of the book is an index, a glossary, a timeline, currency fast facts, portraits of famous people, a listing of interesting places to visit, a select bibliography, and additional recommended book and website resources to explore. Quill says: This is an excellent, clear and concise overview of the Republic of France.
