Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book, which is part of the "Welcome to My Country" series, provides a solid introduction to Malaysia. Any child seeking to learn about the country will find this educational book to be helpful. There is basic information about various topics ranging from Malaysia's history and geography to the leisure activities of its people. The text is straightforward and new vocabulary is in bold type. The contents of the book are fairly thorough and include maps and a list of further reading. There are many colorful photographs that make this book visually appealing. A majority of the photos focus on the land and the people, but there are also a few images of curiosities unique to Malaysia, such as the giant rafflesia flower, which readers may also find engaging. The texts in this series would be useful tools in the classroom to teach children about different countries. This book is a great way to ignite a reader's curiosity about Malaysia and make a child want to learn more about the world. 2004, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 7 to 10.
