A trip across the United Kingdom touches on British history, from Stonehenge to modern London, and from Shakespeare's theater to the Beatles' concerts. Titles in Barron's growing Find Out About series take young readers on delightful tours through countries around the world with vivid descriptions of the land, its history, and its people. A simplified but geographically accurate map of the title country opens up on a gatefold page flap, showing major cities and geographical features. Accompanying the map are facts about the country's area, population, important rivers, and its location on the globe. Each book's four separate sections have different color page tabs to mark the divisions. The four parts are--

An introduction-- facts and figures, highlights of major cities, favorite pastimes of the people Life in the title country-- children at home, at school, and at play, and the grown-ups' major occupations and industries Facts about the country-- its history, its famous people, and its landmarks Have a nice day-- exciting things to see and do when touring the country

Countries are described from a young reader's point of view, and pages are filled with color illustrations. Each book presents an appealing introduction to its title country, offering interesting facts that describe its people and their culture. Books in this series are as entertaining as they are informative, and make fine supplements to textbooks in elementary social studies classes.
