B is for Brazil by Maria De Fatima Campos
  

Synopsis

B is for Brazil by Maria De Fatima Campos

From the wilds of the Amazon rain forest to the busy streets of Sao Paulo, from Carnival to Jangada; from football to Zebu cattle - B is for Brazil shows this lively South American country in all its colorful diversity. Maria de Fatima Campos's full-colour photographs capture the essence of Brazilian life - the interweaving of its cultures and peoples - as she leads the reader on an alphabetic tour. With a simple, informative text, the book illustrates the contrasts between city and rain forest, different customs and peoples, and the world of Brazilian children whether at home, at school, fishing on the river, or painting in the open air.

Reviews

B is for Brazil uses an alphabetic recipe to serve up something of the variety of that huge country Times Educational Supplement
