About the Author:

Linda Hibbs got hooked on Indonesia on her first visit at age 12 and has been studying the language and culture ever since. She has taught Indonesian for over two decades at the secondary school and university levels and holds degrees in Indonesian language and ethnomusicology, as well as a master's degree in Asian studies. She is an educational consultant who has created various resources for Indonesian language educators at the primary and secondary levels, including Tuttle Publishing's Indonesian for Kids Flash Cards and More Indonesian for Kids Flash Cards kits. When she isn't teaching or consulting, she creates artworks and plays Indonesian music with a gamelan orchestra.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3–5—Using eye-catching images and interesting descriptions, Hibbs portrays Indonesia as a land that is both geographically and culturally diverse. She presents an overview of the history of the archipelago and discusses what everyday life is currently like for its inhabitants. The sections on going to school and what youngsters do in their free time should have particular appeal to young readers. The country's variety of religions, special celebrations, and transportation are also addressed. Hibbs includes popular references, such as the fact that many Indonesians, too, watch an Idol-type TV show. Information is brief, which makes the book best suited for casual browsing or as an introduction to the country. The overall layout is attractive and uncluttered, with large, clear fonts, and humorous graphics. Most of the pictures are appealing; however, several small, very detailed photos are sometimes placed on a single page, where one or two larger ones might serve better. Attention-grabbing sidebars highlight maps, statistics, facts, and words or phrases. Readers are given fun, practical opportunities to experience aspects of the country on their own. Step-by-step directions explain how to build a volcano, create puppets, design traditional masks, or make green pancakes or an avocado drink. Informative, entertaining, and child-friendly.—Sherry J. Mills, Hazelwood East High School, St. Louis, MO
