Reviews

All Around the World - Reviewed by School Library Journal

These titles familiarize readers about each respective country. The books include three chapters roughly six pages long and use full-page photographs and small paragraphs on top in a contrasting color. Chapters cover a wide range, from the climate, landscape, and wildlife to everyday life for the citizens including food, education, entertainment, holidays, and government. There is also a quick facts section with infographics and basic maps for “at a glance” information, along with a glossary, index, and what to read to learn more. Teachers and caregivers are also given guidance and a reading prompt for before, during, and after reading. VERDICT A good introductory series for readers interested in exploring the world or working on a school project.
