A noteworthy review of Welcome to the World from School Library Journal on September 1, 2008

Report writers and browsers will appreciate these books. The titles have almost identical chapter headings, such as ‘The People,’ ‘Food,’ and ‘Holidays.’ Potentially unfamiliar words are in bold print, with a brief description in the text and a slightly expanded one in the glossary. The captioned, color photographs have a balanced gender representation. Maps, fast facts, and recipes round out excellent offerings. Entering the books’ ISBNs in a search box on the publisher’s Web site retrieves preselected links to additional high-quality information. These titles present data in an easy-to-read format that is just right.
