About this title

Synopsis:

South America is a remarkable continent, with its lush Amazon rain forest and its vibrant cities. But did you know that South America has the world's highest waterfall? Or that a South American desert is the driest on Earth? Learn more about the diverse continent of South America, from its people and countries to its landforms, economy, and more. Each book in this series highlights major landforms, climate, natural resources, countries, and cultures of the continent, making for an engaging and well-rounded read. Sidebars, maps, a glossary, a Further Reading section, and an index introduce readers to important nonfiction features and support and enhance the main text.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-From the striking full-color satellite cover images to the engaging text, informative maps, and high-quality illustrations, every aspect of these titles conveys the basic themes of geography to introduce the continents. Each volume opens with an interesting fact and locator map, followed by chapters about the continent's countries and cities, landforms, climate, and animals, natural resources, peoples and cultures, and economies. Coverage isn't comprehensive; rather, the authors use iconic examples, such as Carnival for South America, emperor penguins for Antarctica, and the pyramids for Africa. Topics are illustrated with large color photos, and there are at least five informative maps per book, a major strength. Captions provide information or ask comprehension or critical thinking questions. VERDICT Solid choices for elementary collections.α(c) Copyright 2011.
