Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jillian Hurst
Visit unique Nigeria with this volume of "Enchantment of the World Second Series." This lesson includes photographs, maps, educational facts, and a timeline. We learn about the history of Nigerian people, the vast landscape and native animals, and the basics of the Nigerian government. Students can read about the diversity that exists in Nigeria, which includes more than 300 ethnic groups, the most populous of which is the Hausa-Fulani. Also covered in this book are the major religions of Nigeria, primarily Islam and Christianity. A special section of this educational book focuses on "Scenes of Daily Life," which provides readers with snapshots of the average Nigerian lifestyle. This visually-pleasing book provides quality photography, a personal writing style, and all the information a student would need to create a comprehensive report on the country of Nigeria. This addition to the series is a great choice for reference material in a classroom or library. Reviewer: Jillian Hurst
