Booklist Review

Reviewed with Terri Willis' Democratic Republic of the Congo0 . Gr. 4-6. Finely attuned to any number of conventional "country" assignment, these entries in the second Enchantment of the World series offer lucid commentary, digestible quantities of facts and statistics, eye-catching color photos, and eminently useful back matter. Both are similarly structured, with topical chapters presented in the same order, sandwiched between a tantalizing overview, and upbeat but not idealized closing insights into patterns of daily life in their respective lands. Thoughtful readers will be struck by the contrast between the authors' sometimes hard-hitting accounts of the devastating wars that have swept through each country and the brighter impressions conveyed in the photos (even scenes of land-mine removal in Bosnia and Herzegovina0 and unsmiling but well-kept refugees walking through verdant Congo landscapes have, at first glance, an idyllic air), but for collections that still own books with the words Yugoslavia 0 or Zaire0 in their titles, these make essential, first-choice replacements. --John Peters Copyright 2004 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-These basically well-written books should engage a wide range of readers with varied interests. While each one includes a chapter on the history of the country, both titles emphasize geography and culture, especially as they relate to contemporary life. The tendency is to focus on the positive, an appropriate choice for the intended audience. Furthermore, the excellent quality of the photos contributes to the attractiveness of these volumes. Since the style of writing is appealing and the topics are so well presented, it is a shame that several typos were not caught. There are also a few odd usages, such as in the sentences "Slovenes attend their libraries" and "Tourists in Slovenia amount to more than one million." While Matilda Gabrielpillai's Bosnia and Herzegovina (Gareth Stevens, 2001) gives much more information on the war of 1992-'95, its horrors, and its consequences, Milivojevic's book is a better choice for motivating students to learn more about other parts of the world.-Elizabeth Talbot, University of Illinois, Champaign (c) Copyright 2010.
