Countries: Faces and Places

Offer a child a ticket to explore a new world! Each title covers one fascinating nation and vividly portrays its key features--from rugged mountains to tropical beaches, from ancient ruins to bustling streets. Students take a private journey with full-color photo essays, plentiful maps, a native-language word list, and fascinating details about each country's food, special celebrations, and pastimes. Sources for further research, including Web sites, are especially useful for reports.
