School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6‘This completely new book, written by a different author than the original title (1983), describes Japanese culture, cities, nature, history, government, and people. Heinrichs includes information on the Kobe earthquake of 1995 and the wedding of Crown Prince Naruhito in 1993. The writing is clear, if at times bland, but the topics covered are broad in scope and will be suitable for assignments. Good-quality, full-color photographs, reproductions, and maps are interspersed throughout. A two-page time line contrasts Japan's history with world history from 2500 B.C.E through 1996. Another new feature of the "Second Series" is the inclusion of Internet sites, organizations, and embassies. Japanese words and phrases are in italics and defined within the text. A serviceable addition to replace outdated material.‘DeAnn Tabuchi, San Anselmo Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
