Summary: Kids will find out what it’s like to live in Brazil, courtesy of an enthusiastic narrator whose home is in Recife, on the coast. He takes readers on a tour of Brazil, describing its geography, natural features, and some of the cities. Then he focuses on his own home, giving kids a look at what his typical day is like. Additional information about Brazil is conveyed through what the narrator learns about in school. The last page has a picture of the Brazilian flag and some fast facts. 32 pages; grades K-3.
Pros: Part of a new Living in… series, this book would be enjoyed by kids who like learning about other cultures. The series would also work well for a classroom research project on different countries.
Cons: A detailed map of Brazil and some photos would have been nice additions.
