Grade 5–8—The books are good choices for reports as the information is substantial but not overwhelming. The texts are clear, and the discussion points are well chosen. In Spain, readers learn about bullfighting, that the Rock of Gibraltar is actually a territory of Great Britain, and how Gaudí's Sagrada Familia cathedral was started in 1882 and isn't expected to be finished until 2036. In United States, readers are told about chasing tornadoes, how the temperature in Death Valley often reaches 120 degrees, and how giant kelp, found in California's kelp forests, "can grow 2 feet in just one day." This title has a couple of confusing sentences, but they don't detract from its usefulness. Both texts are complemented with stunning photographs. Tips are appended to "Add a Little Extra to Your Country Report!" along with typical back matter. Solid additions.—Stephanie Farnlacher, Trace Crossings Elementary School, Hoover, AL
