Review
(The following is a combined review for Spotlight on Europe; Spotlight on North America; Spotlight on South America; Spotlight on Australia; Spotlight on Africa; Spotlight on Antarctica; Spotlight on Asia; and ) Gr 1 – 2 — Anchored by small but legible maps showing each continent's geographical extent, national borders, landforms, and population density, these primer-level surveys systematically deliver broad but simplistic topical overviews. Texts with poorly phrased lines, such as, "Thousands of plants grow in Asia" and "Africa is the most multilingual continent in the world," accompany large color photos that are generic views in which human figures are rarely seen—and even when visible are often in festival costume rather than typical dress. The same publisher's 2008 "World of Colors" series makes a better choice for this audience. --John Peters (Reviewed April 1, 2011) (School Library Journal, vol 57, issue 4, p104)
