Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 2Both of these titles are designed to look like postcards from one child to another. Each book is divided into double-page spreads; a full-color, captioned photo in postcard size appears on the left; the text, written in the form of a letter, appears in large print on the right. Postscripts, written in slightly more complex language and in smaller print, elaborate on the texts. The result is a very brief overview of the geography, sights, and culture of each country. Both books open with a simple map and end with a picture of the national flag. Only rarely does the narrative refer to something not depicted in the accompanying photograph, as when the discussion of Egypt's Aswan Dam is matched with a photograph depicting the view from the dam, not of the structure itself. Parents planning a family trip or teachers who wish to offer youngsters a quick glimpse of a country and its most famous sights will be well served by these selections. Children requiring substantial information will need to look elsewhere.Linda Greengrass, Bank Street College Library, New York City
