Horn Book Review

Eight brief chapters superficially cover a range of topics about the country, from laws and customs to pets. The book includes a map, fact box, traditional legend, instructions for making a piñata and a game, and a recipe. Large, full-color photos appear on every page. This is an adequate resource for report writers. Directory, reading list. Glos., ind. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
