School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-These new editions have been substantially rewritten, adding current information and human-interest profiles of people, many school-aged children, who live in each nation. There is some reduction in the amount of report information, but books are now more readable and will give readers a broader understanding of each country's people and culture. Topics and format are little changed from the previous editions, and include geography, flora and fauna, history, government, economy, religion, popular and traditional culture, and food and clothing. Information about the environment is a welcome addition, as are authors' objective discussions of each nation's strengths, challenges and prospects. Color photos are large and crisp and capture each country's beauty and culture. Numerous maps and several pages of "Fast Facts" provide additional information. VERDICT Strong choice for middle school libraries. © Copyright 2016. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
