Full-Text Reviews
School Library Journal (April 1, 2016)
K-Gr 3-These beautifully illustrated books take primary students on a visual journey into the meals, schools, home lives, transportation, and cultural entertainment of their peers in all corners of the world. Each book opens with boxed photos superimposed on a world map that show readers where they will be going, followed by 12 spreads that offer several examples within each category, such as unique housing, clothing worn for everyday and special occasions, traditional and makeshift schools, and innovative pastimes and games. The three to four paragraphs of text in each spread are enough to provide basic information while leaving room for the captioned full-page photo on one side and several smaller photos on the other. The mixture of the familiar and exotic and the inclusion of disabled children in Schools Around the World strengthens this series. VERDICT Interesting text and visual appeal make this set an attractive addition for beginning readers and to read aloud. © Copyright 2016.
