Grade 2–4—Splitting this immense continent in two makes sense as there are tremendous contrasts. Southwest ranges from the Arctic regions of Russia to the subtropics of India with the deserts of the Middle East between. Far East begins in China and continues south through the islands of Indonesia. An introductory spread in each book locates the region on a world map and provides basic geographic and map-skills information. The next spread identifies countries and includes images of their flags, lists of national foods, and other miscellaneous information. The remaining sections each include a map of the region on one page with accompanying information facing it, and cover "Landforms," "Bodies of Water," "Climate," "Plants," "Animals," "Population," "Transportation," "Growing and Making" (sections that discuss agriculture, crafts, and industry), "People and Customs," and "Postcard Places." A final essay highlights a location or area of interest, e.g., "Journey Up Mount Everest" or "Sailing Around the Pacific Islands." Bright background colors and short introductory paragraphs make the pages lively. Additional information is included in contrasting call-out boxes, tables, and captioned color photos, though the superimposition of extras on the landform maps sometimes makes reading them more difficult. Still, these are useful additions.—Carol S. Surges, McKinley Elementary School, Wauwatosa, WI
