Countries Around the World booksThis week the World Cup kicked off in Brazil. We’ve got a selection of colourful books on world cities which includes the World Cup host nation’s famous city Rio de Janeiro:

Global Cities: Rio de Janeiro by Simon Scoones

is part of a series published by Evans. They give you key facts about the history, transport, culture, economy, leisure, tourism and environment in the city. Plus an insider’s view on what it’s like to live there. We’ve also got from the series:

Global  Cities: Mexico by Edward Parker.

We all know there’s many nations taking part in World Cup. Raintree’s Countries Around the World series complements these providing a brief history of the country, information on the regions, animals, infrastructure and culture of the country. Plus they come with a timeline and key facts. We have:

Algeria by Lori McManus

China by Patrick Catel

Liberia by Robin S. Doak

Morocco by Nick Hunter

We got both of the series based on feedback from our students wanting more information about other cultures and countries.
