Reviewed with David Petersen's Thailand.
Gr. 3-5. These entries in the continuing True Books-Geography: Countries series take interesting if uncritical looks at Cuba and Thailand. Cuba begins with the natural beauty of the country, and then moves into its history, beginning with Columbus and Spain's rule of the island. Castro's Cuba is covered in a chapter that highlights the good things he has done (e.g., providing universal education and free health care) while just mentioning the less-desirable elements of Cuban society, such as discouraging private business. The book ends oddly. The last sentence is "Change is in the air," and then, "Cuba libre! " a phrase and a concept most readers won't understand. Thailand, too, offers a positive look at the country, with very general information about the land, monarchy, Buddhism, and Thai elephants. Both books feature the series' standard colorful format: large, easy-to-read type, and numerous photos (though some are a bit on the small side). Enough (largely upbeat) information for reports.
