Exclusive online features include video clips and slideshows, a worldwide photo gallery, interviews with adults and children, and a unique recipe collection with five local recipes for each country. Plus, create-your-own data tables and charts help put dozens of facts into perspective.

  • World Edition contains primary-source reports on 208 countries and territories—including every United Nations-member state—focusing on 25 cultural categories, including language, personal appearance, greetings, visiting, family, life cycle, and more.
  • States and Provinces Editions feature colorful, easyto-read reports oriented to young users that describe the diversity and history of each U.S. state, the District of Columbia, and all 13 provinces of Canada. Each report includes maps, flags, and symbols, as well as sections on history, economy, geography, population, Native Americans, and recipes. •
  • Kids Edition teaches upper-elementary- and middleschool-age children more about the world around them. Each report contains images, historical timelines, and fun facts, along with sections on history, population, “life as a kid,” games and sports, education, and more.
