Summary

Summary

For novice explorers eager to know how people in other parts of the world live, Discovering Cultures is the perfect guide. Readers of this delightful series will discover the important things about real life in the country they are reading about. They will learn about different foods, schools, sources of recreation, holidays and festivals, languages, and geography. In each book, brief biographies will introduce them to three notable native inhabitants, both historic and contemporary. Count in... sections (together with a pronunciation guide) will have them counting to ten in a second language. Fun sidebars introduce them to new songs, games, authentic recipes, and crafts.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-4-Although two very different countries with very different cultures are presented, the same formula is used in both books, with the same chapter headings and almost identical pagination. Each series title shows a contemporary view of the geography, people, food, schools, recreation, celebrations, and language of the featured country with only the briefest mention of any history. Numerous clearly labeled photos show children involved in various activities. These are colorful and current introductions, but offer little substance and are not well organized for reports.-Nancy A.
