Synopsis

Malaysia by Aiden Glendinning, Jim Holmes

The Petronas Twin Towers that soar above Kuala Lumpur's skyline symbolise Malaysia's prosperity. Malaysia, one of Asia's 'Tiger' economies, has weathered the storm of the 1997 financial crisis and is rapidly becoming a world leader in hi-tech industries. But can Malaysia still justify its description -- the 'Pearl of the Orient'? Can its fragile ecosystems be adequately protected? Will economic growth benefit all of Malaysia's multicultural population? Meet the people of Malaysia and learn about the diversity of their lives, from a tour guide to a soil scientist. Includes maps and graphic panels showing statistics and fact boxes about size, flag, population, religion, currency and language.>

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
