About this title
Discusses Australia's history, culture, family life, education, religion, and government.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-- Attractive introductions to two countries with diverse multicultural populations. Both countries have for far too long been stereotyped as rough, "back-woodsy," semi-civilized places. Reality in the 20th Century is otherwise; and these handsome picture geographies provide a broad if superficial look at the physical characteristics, climate, history, government, and urban and rural populations, with their rich mixture of race, culture, religion, wildlife, farming, etc. that should invite further study. Splendid full-color photographs are the strongest selling points of the series, with at least two and often as many as four per spread. The series features readable, large-print text with difficult or regional terminology in boldface type and explained in a glossary. --Joan McGrath, Education Centre Library, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
