School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-These books give highly interesting coverage of the history, geography, and economy of three major cities. Discussions of shopping, leisure activities, and social dynamics give a real sense of each urban center and its surroundings. Full-color photos, charts, graphs, maps, and sidebars abound, providing great support for the lively texts. Better organized and more current and informative than the "Great Cities" series (Rosen), these volumes are solid choices for most collections.-Robyn Walker, Elgin Court Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada (c) Copyright 2010.
