Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This Bobbie Kalman Book is part of the "Lands, Peoples, and Cultures" series. It is also one of three nonfiction books about the country of Sweden. These three books make a comprehensive resource for a study of Sweden. They are packed full of information which is presented in an approachable, interesting, and engaging manner. These books are also visually stimulating since the photography is well placed, colorful, and recent. Through the photos the reader develops a deeper understanding of the culture, the land, and the people of Sweden. Each book also includes a glossary and index. Sweden: The People covers many interesting topics such as the early history of Sweden and the Vikings, the development of the monarchy, sports, and food. It also includes a section about the Sami, the first people believed to have settled Sweden. 2004, Crabtree Publishing Company, Ages 8 to 13.
