Gr 2–4—In each title, very basic facts, related in choppy sentences, cover famous places, geography, weather, animals, plants, people, natural resources, and products. Fact boxes, maps, statistics, and labeled color photos enhance the value of the set. Each title opens with the continent highlighted on a world map and includes a downloadable 4-D app and critical-thinking questions that offer opportunities for educators to extend the lesson. The writing doesn't flow smoothly, and each narrative reads like it is unfinished. Additionally, the coverage for each continent is so broad and the information so sparse that the set won't serve even the youngest report writers.
VERDICT Consider Antarctica only.
