BRAZIL: Giant of the South by Alice Rogers Hager

BRAZIL: Giant of the South

Email this review


Virtually a big picture geography, but for older children than that might indicate. The text is built around the fine photographs of Jackie Martin, photographs that contribute -- with the text -- the salient facts of Brazil's history and geography, its government, its states and cities, its products, occupations, people, its communication and transportation facilities, its art and literature. An interesting experiment in bookmaking, this integral unity of text and pictures, successfully developed. A book that all ages, from fourth or fifth grade up will find of interest and value.
