School Library Journal - Julie R. Ranelli

"These well-researched, alphabetical introductions offer something meaningful and informative for every letter. A brief introduction places the country on the map, clearly stating its continent and showing its neighbors. Each page includes one letter, a few explanatory sentences, and, often, a related one-sentence "fast fact." The terms applied to the alphabet do not feel contrived, and they highlight a significant part of the country's culture. For example, "Q" in Venezuela is for queso blanco (phonetic pronunciation included), a cheese that does not melt when heated. The always-challenging letter "X" in Vietnam stands for xich lo, "a carriage ride by bike." The most captivating illustrations are seen in the expressive folk-art style of Venezuela's acrylic paintings. The art in Costa Rica also features acrylics, but in a less-engaging, realistic style. The pictures in Brazil are a bit cartoonlike and digital. The watercolor and gouache, realistic art makes Vietnam visually appealing. Back matter includes a list of encyclopedic facts (major industries, holidays, population, etc.), a useful glossary, a handful of basic words and their translations, and the FactHound link. Useful purchases with genuinely interesting facts in clear prose and colorful illustrations." - School Library Journal
