School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-4-Covering a range of topics from currency and world geography to U.S. culture, this bright set stands out for its vibrant photographs. Colorful charts, maps, and sidebars accompany clearly written text that, especially in the case of Money, appropriately simplifies complicated subjects for young readers. Unfamiliar words are defined both at the bottom of the page on which they appear and in the glossary. Despite three of the volumes' focus on U.S. culture, this series is certainly not limited to that one nation; careful readers will discover the inclusion of graphics representing other writing systems, such as a Cyrillic globe in Maps, thereby subtly enhancing the series' broader worldview. VERDICT An eye-catching selection, this will introduce a variety of basic topics to young readers. © Copyright 2017. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
