This addition to the series was written by a woman who was born in Pakistan, and is illustrated with colorful photos. Each letter of the alphabet is associated with a word in Urdu or English that has something to do with the country's history, culture, or geography. Appropriately enough, the letter A is for the word for welcome, Asslam-U-Alaikum. Other entries include E for Eid, I for Indus, S for Shalwar-Kameez, and Y for Yaar (Urdu for friends). The author notes in her introduction that Pakistan is in fact quite diverse, as it is divided into a number of provinces with different languages, clothing, and customs, and this diversity is reflected in the choice of illustrations, which depict scenes throughout the country, both urban and rural. While this book wouldn't necessarily be a first choice for reports, it is a good introduction to the country, and the beautiful color photographs and graphic design make it attractive enough for browsing.-Kathleen E.
