With all the excitement of the 2016 Olympics, your children may be asking about the country of Brazil. Roman's book, like her others in this cultural series, will answer all their questions and more.
Not just focusing on the large cities in Brazil, but the rainforest and other famous tour locations, Roman shares the numerous things to love about Brazil. From the language to the activities, children will get a sense of what an average child would experience if they lived in Brazil.
I had no idea that Brazil was the world's largest producer of coffee in the world. I'll have to pay more attention to where my coffee comes from.
The illustrations are bold and drawn to show accurate descriptions of the land and people. I loved how Wierenga portrayed a family taking a selfie at the Christ the Redeemer statue, a famous tourist location in Brazil. Wierenga uses a unique way of placing her illustrations in front of actual photos of the country.
Like the others in this series, children and parents will find much to learn about the country. This book would make another great asset to a school, home and community library.
