School Library Journal
Through a straightforward text, excellent maps, and a variety of full-color and historical photographs, students will gain a clear introduction to the country. Short, focused chapters and "At a Glance" spreads that pair facts with maps present information on the geography, environment, history, culture, government, and economy. The maps are especially illustrative as they include notations pointing out where photographs were taken. Although there are many books about Kenya, this one is clearly a standout. There is even a section at the end entitled, "Add a Little Extra to Your Country Report!" that suggests ideas and Web addresses for expanding students' knowledge. For those in need of an overview that is both factual as well as photographic, this is a good choice.
