For novice explorers eager to know how people in other parts of the world live, Discovering Cultures is the perfect guide. Not just sightseers, readers of this delightful series will discover the important things about real life in the country they are visiting. They will learn about different foods, schools, sources of recreation, holidays and festivals, languages and geography. In each book brief biographies will introduce them to three notable native inhabitants, both historic and contemporary. "Count in..." sections (together with a pronunciation guide) will have them counting to ten in a second language. Fun sidebars introduce them to new songs, games, authentic recipes and crafts. Full-color photographs enhance the straightforward text, and together they provide young readers with a thoroughly enjoyable gateway to other lands and cultures.
