"Breathtakingly lovely, this is a unique way to approach explaining a country to children. There are two volumes in this set and they must be read together but how you do that is up to you. One volume, Holland, is all images of Holland showing different scenes and parts of the nation and culture. The illustrations are large, two-page spreads filled with small details. In the second volume, the details in the illustrations are explained. Pulling out various elements of the images, many things are revealed from favorite foods to festivals to children’s book characters. There are paragraphs on each element so that readers truly start to understand Holland.

This book would not work in the same way without this format. Taking the time to linger on images makes for almost a journey to Holland as if you are gazing out a window and taking it all in. Then when you begin to wonder about something, you can turn to your guidebook and see what it is with wonderful details. But it is that first immersion visually that makes the entire set work so well and be so compelling.

A wondrous visit to Holland, this book set demonstrates why innovation in children’s book making is so important. Appropriate for ages 8-12.

" Robin showed me this pair of books, and WHOA, is it incredible. One is wordless, and the other unpacks all the stunningly small details with history and explanations. You could spend hours at this. Hours. Bonus: I learned a new term from a cocoa tin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Droste_e... " said.
