Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-A short introduction to the country, divided into 13 double-page topics. Full-color photographs and two or three sentences of easy-to-read text appear on every page. Unfortunately, many of the sections are so brief that they are misleading. For example, in "Work," readers are told that Mexicans make cars, machinery, and clothes; are employed by tourist hotels and restaurants; and do farm labor, giving the incorrect impression that no Mexicans hold white-collar positions. The inclusion of inaccurate facts is also problematic. Alcraft writes that "Mexico is in Central America," but in the glossary, he defines Central America as "the land between Mexico and Panama." Mary Berendes's Mexico (Child's World, 1998) is roughly the same length but provides more even coverage and has a more attractive layout.-Denise E. Agosto, formerly at Midland County Public Library, TX Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
