Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This volume from the "Our World" series gives beginning readers basic information about this East African nation. Kenya's land, animals, people, and prehistory are each described in a few simple sentences. The text is merely a recitation of facts: "Kenya is on the east coast of Africa." "Some Kenyans fish or guide tourists to earn money." The wide margins and double-spaced text give the book a simple, unfussy format. Each two-page spread has a page of text accompanied by a page of photographs, with an occasional small sidebar (a picture of the Kenyan flag and a picture of Kenyan money). The photography is dull, surprisingly so given Kenya's natural beauty. The small size of the book (about 6 by 7 inches) may not appeal to all children. The volume includes a Kenyan map, a flag, a table of contents, a list of words to know, suggestions for further reading, Internet sites on Kenya, and an index. 2002, Pebble Books, Capstone Press, Turner
