"This is an introductory series to Earth’s continents and the landforms, animals, and plants found on each one. Opening spreads provide some defining details about the continent and a “Did You Know?” box with a few main facts relating to language, climate, and/or famous landmarks. Subsequent pages cover the location relative to the equator, the land and climate, plants and animals, countries, and people. A concluding “Fast Facts” page includes statistical and geographical information, including pictured “Top Landmarks” and popular tourist spots. Illustrations are the set’s strongest element, with a mix of labeled and captioned full-page and smaller boxed photos on each page. Shaded maps that show geographic features, landmarks, and cities are a plus. Although there are numerous sets about the continents for beginning readers, this one’s slightly different emphasis on the natural world will have wide appeal." VERDICT: Solid introductions to support nonfiction reading requirements.
