Gr 1-3-There are few books about Middle Eastern countries for this audience, and this one has some good things about it. The attractive and engaging format consists of two-page topic treatments that have photographs and drawings as well as insets to explain details mentioned in the text. Simplifying the contents for this audience, however, results in some broad generalizations, e.g., "Saudi women are more comfortable in the company of other women. Saudi men can relax more around other men." The tone is positive throughout, and controversial issues are not dealt with. Despite this, Anderson offers a good, basic introduction to the country and its people. There are a few caveats. Most Saudi women do not wear veils that cover their whole face as shown. The photo of the wealthy businessman sprawled out in his limousine will draw children's inquiries by its over-the-top lushness. Also, the use of American slang throughout, such as "kids" and "hang out," is jarring.-Carol Johnson Shedd, National Outreach Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA
