Gr 3–5—Packed with information, this set features children who invite readers to join them on tours of their countries. In each title, students learn about common types of houses, foods, and schools as well as major cities and regions, manufacturing and agricultural jobs, and notable celebrations and pastimes. Also included in each book is a retelling of a traditional story, a craft/recipe, fascinating facts, a guessing game, and a "How to Prepare for Your Visit" list with tips for potential tourists. Overall, the author approaches the content with an upbeat tone, and the good-quality photos, many of which feature children, nicely supplement the texts.
VERDICT The conversational style and wide range of information included will make this a useful series for report writers and browsers.
