Reviewed with Charles J. Shields' Belize.
Gr. 5-7. These two volumes are part of the eight-book Discovering Central America series. Central America looks at the region as a whole, briefly reviewing geography and history and providing a glimpse of the area's peoples and cultures. Belize uses a similar approach within the focus of a single country, as do other volumes, which present facts and figures on Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. The books feature color photos and appended material including maps, recipes, a glossary, a chronology, and ideas for projects or reports. Tailored for the quick research needs of students, the titles present their information smoothly and in well-organized fashion. Denise Wilms
