Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book is about the customs, traditions, languages and beliefs of people who live in countries of the world. It is a wonderful introduction to national festivals, religious beliefs, rituals, customs and traditions of the diverse planet we call home. Full-color photographs highlight where people live, what their homes look like, what they eat, how they dress and how they travel from place to place. Governments are explained, as are the arts and architecture of various cultures. The book then goes a step beyond the ordinary and becomes an interactive learning tool via links to relevant sites on the Internet. The book also has a site of it's own for quick and easy access and up-to-date direct links to recommended sites. The site also reminds students and teachers of the importance of following Internet safety guidelines. This book really is a great reference tool. The Internet links are a nice bonus, especially for the tech-savvy student who might otherwise avoid reading about geography and the fascinating people around us. Part of the "Internet-Linked" series. 2001, Usborne, $14.95 and 22.95. Ages 9 to 15. Reviewer: Julie Eick Granchelli
