Review:
Faces puts a realistic face on the way people live in other countries, regions and places that readers ages nine to fourteen may never visit. Fostering an appreciation as well as an awareness of the world's many traditions, Faces encourages readers to think from new perspectives. Topics each year include national and ethnic groups, contemporary global issues, a biography of an international figure, and an up-close look at a region in the U.S. Each issue focuses on a different culture-from Laos to Morocco to Jamaica-including folk tales, stories about daily life, history, traditions, maps and local games. Beautiful photographs and colorful illustrations make this a save-and-reread publication.
