Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 1-3

Revised and updated from 10 years ago, these titles cover 13 categories in two-page chapters. Typically, two large photos and three to five sentences make up a section, thus providing very brief information on each country's land, landmarks, homes, food, clothes, work, transportation, language, school, free time, celebrations, and the arts. Soft-hued pastel-colored pages replace the monochrome colors of the older editions. Some photos have been updated and subtle word changes have been made. Even so, the brevity of the texts leads to some oversimplification, e.g., Alcraft still mentions that Mexican workers only make cars, machinery, or clothes; look after tourists; or are farmers. In China , the Great Wall is quoted as being 3923 miles long, whereas other sources put it at more than 4000 miles long. Still, despite their flaws, these are adequate sources for beginning researchers.-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX
