    1. DiverseGood simplified language for young readers. Tells about a little girl who doesn't know much about any countries, and learns about how awesome Mexico is. Good storyline of learning about cultures.

    4. This is a great book for showing young children about another culture. I loved all the Hispanic elements woven into a sweet plot. I know young children will enjoy it (including my seven year old!)

    5. sarahs class has to think of a country and every one else in class has been to a country other then the usabut she has not so she has to think up an idea.

    6. A boring little beginning chapter book about an annoying girl and her need to fulfill a school assignment.
