This series provides readers with the depth of information required for extended study of different countries. Each book isolates themes to compare and contrast aspects of countries at different stages of economic development. There is more emphasis placed on human geography with some coverage of physical geography, providing links to the geography curriculum at Key Stage 3 and 4. This volume is illustrated in full colour and focuses upon Kenya.

Grade 4-6-Two solid country books. The standard information (culture, history, geography, economy, etc.) is well organized, an introduction gives an overview, and subsequent sections expand on the respective topics. A "Fact File" appears at the beginning of each section and gathers together important data. Both authors present their material in a clear, objective, and accessible style. Profusely illustrated with well-captioned, black-and-white and full-color photographs and graphs, these titles also feature maps of metropolitan areas, and, while the illustrations of the flags are small, they're better than many. A time line graphically compares each country's history with worldwide events and gives readers a historical context. These additions will supplement collections that already own the "Enchantment of the World" series (Children's) and the "Cultures of the World" series (Marshall Cavendish).
