Living in...Brazil by Chloe Perkins -- ADVISABLE
This nonfiction early reader introduces children to life in Brazil. It includes a few details about the ecology and the school day, a brief description of several major cities, and a quick historical overview. A one-page afterword lays out basic facts about the country in a quick format, perhaps to help with research projects.
This introduction to Brazil has an approachable voice, colorful pictures, and just enough detail to inform elementary-age children without inundating them with facts.
