This fascinating book describes the geological makeup and history of the Atacama Desert in Chile. One of the driest areas of the worldsome parts never receive any rainthe desert's climate can be cold, sometimes producing snow and fog. Readers will be fascinated to learn that the Atacama's soil is so similar to soil samples from Mars that NASA goes to this desert to test its exploration instruments. NASA has also set up its Earth-Mars Cave Detection Program in the Atacama, too. Special sections also describe the desert's natural resources and unique problems facing this region, as well as the people, plants, and animals that inhabit this desert habitat. From School Library Journal: Gr 3-7-These books are clearly written, comprehensive, and ideal for reports. Each one opens with a map showing the area covered by the desert and concludes with a map of the world's deserts. The maps and full-color photos enhance the texts and have informative captions. Readers will enjoy learning about the various animals that live in these unusual climates. For example, in the Kalahari Desert, springbok typically graze at night, but if they "do feed during the daytime, they face away from the sun. Doing so allows their white bottoms to reflect the heat." Additional subjects include the history and current status of human inhabitants, plant life, the terrain, natural resources, and ways the desert may be at risk. The concisely written texts will be valuable to report writers.-Stephanie Farnlacher, Trace Crossings Elementary School, Hoover, ALα(c) Copyright 2011.

Introduces the festivals and holidays of China. From School Library Journal: Gr 3-5-Holidays well known and obscure are introduced in this series. Each volume begins with a welcome to its titular nation and includes information about its geographical setting and general population, and offers a generic introduction to the concept of traditions. China and Japan highlight the nations' emphasis on the family and ancestry. The holidays are then presented spread by spread in approximate chronological order, starting with the New Year. Each occasion is accompanied by dates (lunar or Gregorian) and information on its origins and how it is observed. Much attention is paid to which holidays give people the day off from work or school. Captioned photographs-mainly in color-adorn each spread, along with "Did You Know?" boxes featuring fun facts. Vocabulary words in bold are well chosen and defined in a glossary; the index helps young researchers-probably this series' primary users-locate necessary facts. Good updates for the "Festivals of the World" series (Gareth Stevens, 1997) or to augment titles in the Marshall Cavendish 2010 series.-Rebecca Dash Donsky, New York Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2011.

Examines the holidays and festivals of Egypt, including Mawlid, Coptic Christmas, and Abu Simbel Sun Festival. From Booklist: Ever heard of Coptic Christmas? How about National Wattle Day? If that’s a no and a no, look to the titles in the Cultural Traditions in My World series for an introduction. Unlike your typical about-a-country books, these focus solely on holidays, special events, and customs—encompassing everything from religious observances to seasonal rituals—and present them in chronological order as they occur throughout the year. Celebrations highlighted in Cultural Traditions in Egypt include Sham el Naseem (Arabic for “sniff the breeze”), an April or May festival that marks the start of spring. These large-format books feature one custom per spread and colorful, action-oriented photographs. Back matter is fairly nonexistent; nonetheless, the titles offer a tidy overview of a topic covered in many elementary school units. Grades 2-5, --Ann Kelley "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
