Children's Literature
For children who wonder what it would be like to live on an island, this should prove an intriguing volume. Geographical location, foods, transportation, religion, agriculture, and weather are some of the topics that are explored. At least one photograph, painting, or map appears with each page of text, providing the reader with ample visual images of the country and its people. Special features include six chapter divisions, a glossary, an index, suggested Web sites, and a Meet the Author section. Captions accompany the prolific photographs so that young readers can easily connect illustration and text. Both ancient and modern government is addressed as is the significant role played by the United States in the progress of the country. This is volume six in the "A True Book" series. 2003, Children's Press/Scholastic,
