Horn Book Review

An abundance of brightly colored illustrations enhance portraits of these European countries. In addition to the usual fare--geography, history, economics, government--these books offer a closer look at the people: their art, literature, music, sports, and food (including regional recipes). Timelines parallel local and world events and cultural, economic, and physical maps append the informative texts. Reading list, websites. Bib., glos., ind. [Review covers these Cultures of the World titles: Hungary, Britain, Poland, Switzerland, Romania, and Russia.] (c) Copyright 2010.
