Part of Scholastic's 2013 series on the continents, this title follows the well-known format of other Rookie Read-About books. The 32 pages generally alternate between text and full-page color photos. Basic information is given about people and animals that live on the continent, geography (water and land) and "Modern Marvels." The plural is not necessary since the Library of Alexandria is the only item discussed on the page. Four words with pictures are printed on the "Words to Know" page; I would prefer the title be "Glossary" so that young people can begin the learn the descriptors they will use in school. The index includes many more words than I would've expected in a book this length, a very nice surprise.
