School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-4-Both of Oluonye's books have the same organization and identical full-color photos, and present parallel concepts. However, the "A Ticket to" series entry has larger type and an abbreviated text, making it more suitable for younger children and less-competent readers. Both volumes cover basic information: geography and wildlife, history, language, food, education, religion, art, and music. They also address apartheid and how certain groups of the South African population are still being segregated and oppressed. While the "Globe-trotters" entry will be more useful for most middle-grade report writers, the "A Ticket to" title will serve the varying needs of mainstream and special-needs students.-Betsy Barnett, Eads School District, CO (c) Copyright 2010.
