Gr 2-4-These informative overviews include short chapters on each country's land, history, government and economy, people, language, arts, leisure, and food. Enticing covers, bright full-color captioned photographs on each page, bold chapter headings, and easy-to-read print make the books attractive as well as user-friendly. Students working on reports will find the clear maps and "Quick Facts" sections particularly helpful. Inclusion of historical figures and contemporary authors, musicians, artists, and sports personalities add interest. Libraries needing material in addition to the "True Book" country series (Children's) might consider these titles.-Kristina Aaronson, Bethel Elementary School Library, VT Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
