Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This title in the "Fact Finders" series offers an overview of the country in a question and answer format. Colorful illustrations and maps, and an easy reading level will make this useful for students' reports. Short sentences and a nice layout of sidebars and alternating colored and white pages add to its attractiveness. History, geography, and government are briefly explained. Illustrated paragraphs about means of transportation and industries offer information about current life in this country in east-central Africa. The book states that Rwanda is slightly smaller than Maryland. A section on education is illustrated with a picture of children meeting outside for class. Cultural activities, games, and art lead the reader to information about major holidays, and food and family life. There is a page of "fast facts" which includes the country's official name, land area, population, religions, and weather. The money and flag are illustrated. Some simple words and phrases are translated into Kinyarwanda and pronunciations are given. A glossary, internet sites, additional reading, and an index conclude the text. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 8 to 12.
