Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ellen Welty
Spain reflects the influence of multiple cultures in its language, its food, its architecture, and its government. Part of the "Countries Around the World" series for middle school students, this book allows readers to see the many cultures that have been part of Spain's history and the impact those cultures have had on the people of Spain and their way of life. In addition to seven photographically illustrated chapters that discuss history, resources, wildlife, government, culture and life today there is a Fact File for quick reference, a timeline that illustrates the turbulent history, a glossary, a bibliography that includes websites and physical places to visit, a traceable map and flag and an index. Sidebars throughout the book discuss events or people in greater detail. There are also several phrase lists with English and Spanish terms, their meanings and their pronunciation in Spanish. The chapter about the contemporary Spanish culture includes a recipe for Spanish tortilla (an omelet made with eggs and potatoes). While no single volume could cover everything about a country like Spain, this book will give beginning researchers a good overview and will help them find additional resources. Recommended.
