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