This book was an informational text about manatees. It was very straight forward and easy to understand for children. There were a lot of real pictures of manatees. It also had different chapters to organize the information and a glossary at the end of the book.

The history of Cuba is described from the time that Columbus arrived until recent times. This book provided many details about Cuba. The native people who once lived in Cuba were called Taino, and most of them were killed by the Spanish. African slaves were brought, but they were freed many years later. There are African, mestizo, and European descent in Cuba. Children are required to attend school until the age of 12, and the economy is poor. The government is trying to build the economy by building factories. The history of Fidel Castro is explained, and it gave me a better understanding of their culture. This book will be great for kids because it explains different aspects of Cuba. For an activity I would require students to describe Cuba in an essay.… (més)
