Gr 3-6-Using a simple format, these series entries state their intended purpose on the back covers: to help readers learn "...how everyday objects and activities can reflect one's culture." Each title begins with a short, general explanation of dolls or masks and their uses. Each volume offers a general world overview and, unfortunately, no in-depth information. Numerous full-color photographs, uncluttered pages, and a variety of colored borders make these books inviting, but the texts are too brief. Robert Young's Dolls (Dillon, 1992) and Carol Gelber's Masks Tell Stories (Millbrook, 1993) are more informative. A more interesting approach is taken in Ting and Neil Morris's Masks (1993) and in Meryl Doney's Masks (1996, both Watts). Those titles provide information as well as projects.-Robin Works Davis, Hurst Public Library, TX
