Discover the countries of the world - explore their geography, wildlife, traditions, and arts in this picture-packed children's book.
Every country profile is packed with photos, and each nation has a full-color map detailing its main cities, landscape features, and borders, and exactly where in the world it is. At-a-glance panels provide a quick reference to all the stats, and the easy-to-read text is full of fascinating, fun facts.
Countries, Cultures, People & Places shows the many unique things that make one country different from another but might also reveal surprising similarities. Did you know that Cuba's national sport is baseball, one of the most popular sports in the USA? And that kids in both Japan and Chile have earthquake drills on their school schedule? Find out about anything from the spookily vibrant Day of the Dead parade in Mexico and the beautiful springtime cherry blossom displays of Japan, to blueberry-picking in Sweden and India's space program.
So pack your bags, decide your destination, and begin your journey!
