Review:

"Written with elementary and middle school students in mind, these volumes provide in-depth information about each featured country. Each book is divided into chapters that include geography, history and customs, food, information about the people, and more. The main focus of this visually appealing series is the natural world. Venezuela guides the reader to explore this country's tallest mountains and green rain forests, listen to a folktale, and take part in a baseball game. The reader visits Caracas, the capital of Venezuela, and learns about the language, population, flag, and more. In Kenya readers learn through maps, photos, and text about the various African peoples of the country but also about the smaller number of Indian families who came to Kenya to help lay railroad tracks during British rule. Egypt reveals details about the giant pyramids and the Nile River, the longest river in the world, and shows that people who travel to the Sahara desert don't need raincoats because it rarely rains. India illustrates through photos and a map the Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal, and the Himalaya Mountains, formed over millions of years when India was a separate piece of land. When India and the Asian continent crashed into each other, some of the land that moved upward became the Himalayas. In contrast, the mountains in Japan were formed by old volcanoes. At one point the leaders of Japan closed off their country to the world - no one could enter or leave. This resulted in all people in Japan speaking the same language and practicing the same culture. Russia covers a country so large that it is part of two continents, Asia and Europe. Although, Russians are the largest ethnic group in this country, there are also many different ethnic people in Russia with their own language, religion, and history."
