Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ellen Welty
Ireland has been immortalized in songs, stories and movies; so much so that the myth is often weightier than the truth. Part of the trustworthy “Enchantment of the World” series, this updated volume seeks to provide young researchers with a good overview and plenty of fast facts. There are ten chapters, each of which can be read in depth or more superficially for specific information. In addition to natural resources and climate, the chapters cover government and politics, history, commerce, religion, culture and food. There is a recipe for colcannon, a potato dish, and a discussion about other traditional foods. There are a number of appendices, including a timeline that lists events in Irish history in the context of world history, a page of fast facts, a list of common Irish words, a list of famous people, a bibliography and a comprehensive index. As with the other titles in the series, this text will help middle school researchers get started with their social studies assignments. A great addition to school or public libraries. Reviewer: Ellen Welty; Ages 10 to 14.

Gr 4-8-A hundred thousand welcomes to this new edition in this series. With accuracy and clarity, Blashfield introduces elementary researchers and travelers to the country's land, history, people, and culture. Well organized into 10 chapters comprised of short sections, this resource gives quick access to a world of facts or a thorough overview. No one topic is explored in any great depth, but there is enough information to give students the big picture or point young researchers in any number of directions. Stunning color photographs and clear, bright maps enhance the package. Ireland includes a thorough "Fast Facts" section as well as references to other books (fiction and nonfiction), videos, Web sites, and embassies and consulates.-Jeanne Clancy Watkins, Chester County Library, Exton, PA
