Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The Seine, Champs-Elysees, Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower are a few of the French landmarks students will read about as they learn about present-day culture in France. This volume of the "Discovering Cultures" series has incredibly vibrant pictures that convey meaning not possible with words. The colors of the French flag decorate each page of text, acquainting the reader with the culture, schools, and celebrations of France. The pictures show the people, the land, and the culture with amazing detail. Although the pictures communicate a great deal of meaning, the text is also weighty as it discusses French architecture, French popular opinion, French foods and markets, and French leisure activities. The appealing layout of the book does not detract from the sophistication of the text. Sections on the flag and money, numbers, a brief glossary, biographies of notable French people, additional information on France, and an index make this an easily accessible book for use by upper elementary or middle school students. 2003, Benchmark Books/Marshall Cavendish Corporation,

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-These brief, colorful introductions discuss geography, culture, lifestyles, school, entertainment, and holidays. Each one includes a recipe and song, and Mexico also has a game and craft. Both contain abbreviated glossaries and mini-biographies of three famous people. While these books are lovely to look at, and will appeal to children, the information is dreadfully superficial (and stereotyped). The maps are inadequate and don't identify neighboring countries-even those mentioned in the text-or, for France, mountain ranges. There are no statistics (area, population, etc.). The best alternatives are Donna Knoell's France (2002) and Barbara Saffer's Mexico (2001, both Bridgestone), which provide far more in-depth overviews for the same audience. Compare, for example, Asher's generalized comment, "Today, most Mexicans attend a Catholic church," with Saffer's statements: "About 89 percent of Mexico's population is Roman Catholic. Many Mexicans mix their Catholic beliefs with ancient native beliefs." Saffer is specific, yet mind-expanding at the same time.-Ann W.
