School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 4-6-These two books examine parts of the world that are much in the news, but about which most American children know little. Each one covers the land/terrain where the Kurds and Bedouins live, natural resources, religion, history, family life, customs and culture, food, economy, and current struggles. The Kurds' ongoing quest for independence is objectively discussed, as are traditional and modern lifestyles. Several well-placed, full-color photos, with brief captions, are included on each page in both volumes; the overall design is clean and easy to navigate. Both books refer readers to other titles, videos, Web sites, and organizations.-Peg Glisson, Mendon Center Elementary School, Pittsford, NY Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
