K-Gr 3-These attractive titles have immediate "pick-me-up" appeal. The covers feature a full-color photo of a child from the featured country. Inside, readers find a political map of the world with the area in focus outlined and a few basic facts about it. The books function like photo albums with good-quality, well-captioned color photographs being the most prominent feature of each spread. The brief accompanying texts offer information about the child's home life and culture. While these volumes would not be useful for reports, they're excellent for browsing.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
