An alphabetical introduction to the history, geography, and culture of the Americas.
Posted December 18, 1999
Epic in scope, rich in cultural diversity, colorful in its illustrations of people, celebrations, and natural wonders, A Is For The Americas shows it all, creating an awe-inspiring appreciation of the Western Hemisphere suitable for children of all ages. Gorgeous artwork depicts Futbol (soccer) players, Gaucho cowboys in Argentina, Igloos of the Inuit, the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo river meandering through canyons to link the U.S. and Mexico, Salsa dancers, Totem Poles in the great Northwest, Yucatan pyramids and the Mayan calendar, Zuni pueblos, and much more. No other illustrated children's book creates such a vivid impression of the wonderous wealth of customs, geography, and languages that make the Americas unique. Truly a treat for the eye, the ear, and the spirit.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
