About this title


Looking at all aspects of daily life such as home life, school and leisure time in the city of Okazaki and the village of Narai, the differences between the two communities are exposed. There is almanac type material about Japan in general.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7. Urban and rural life are compared and contrasted in these two attractive offerings filled with full-color photographs in a variety of appealing layouts. Japan focuses on the city of Okazaki and the small village of Narai, Brazil on Sao Paulo and Horto. Topics covered include landscape and climate, home life, work, education, recreation, and the outlook for the future. General subjects are discussed on one double-page spread, followed by one spread for the city and one for the village. Boxes give additional facts or quotations from residents. The clearly written texts are not without flaws. One might question calling Japan "the world leader in the production of cars, machinery, and electronics" or "the world's leader in science and technology." Some of the historical information is also incorrect. Brazil understates the poverty found in the city. See Irene Galvin's Brazil (Marshall Cavendish, 1996) for a more realistic appraisal at a slightly higher reading level.?Diane S. Marton, Arlington County Library, VA
