Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Four new countries and nine updated editions have been added to Bobbie Kalman's popular Lands, Peoples, and Cultures series. These powerful and intimate portraits of countries use up-to-date information and full-color photography. Presented in a mini series format, three books per country ensures thorough coverage of all the important aspects. It also allows more students to work on different projects at the same time. Covering more than basic history and geography, students will be fascinated to learn about:

-- the land... geography, agriculture, transportation, history, industry, and glorious wonders

-- the people... unique customs, customs we share, problems faced by minority groups and women

-- the culture... modern festivals, ancient processions, food, games, and more

Spectacular new photographs fill this new edition of China the culture. Children will love learning about the ancient traditions and modern pastimes of China's 4000-year-old civilization.

Other topics include:
-- Chinese inventions
-- performing arts
-- the various styles of Chinese cooking
-- the Chinese horoscope
-- traditional and modern medicine
-- festivals, games, and activities

Synopsis:
