About this title


An introduction to the history, land, economy, government, and holidays of Russia.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-These slim volumes cover a wide range of topics in very few pages. In trying to do too much, oversimplification is inevitable. Britton confuses readers when she states that "Iraq has a strong economy" and then on the next page says that sanctions have made it difficult for Iraqis to live well. She also overstates her case when she insists that the sanctions have not allowed the country to sell oil, when, in fact, Iraq has been allowed to export oil in limited quantities. There are errors in Russia, such as stating that, "The Ukrainian group speaks Uralic languages." Unfortunately, the format in both books seems to require lists of sometimes unfamiliar plants and animals, more lists of products that are manufactured, the citing of strings of cultural figures, and even the naming of museums and airports. It makes for dull reading and won't be very meaningful for the intended age group. There is no explanation of how to pronounce any of the Iraqi or Russian words or city names, and the equivalent of the words given for hello and good-bye in Russian are neither proper transliterations nor phonetically correct. A few Internet sites are suggested, but CIA and Library of Congress sites are hardly child-friendly choices.
