K-Gr 3-Tunisia is seen through the eyes of a boy who lives in a modern city, attends school, and helps out at his family's bookstore. However, this title loses its focus on Arafat when it switches to the Sahara Desert and the Bedouins' lifestyle. It ends abruptly, explaining that "Many tourists come to explore the desert. They travel either on camelback or in an SUV." In Leila, readers follow a youngster in a nomadic Berber tribe as the people break camp and move to search for new pastures and water. Kuntai introduces the life of a child who lives on a wildlife reserve in Kenya. It shows children taking care of the smaller animals and explains that the elders teach them the history of their people. Clear, crisp photographs enhance the information in all three texts. Although this series does not provide much detail, it does offer limited introductions to these cultures.-Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
