Living in...Italy by Chloe Perkins -- ADVISABLE

Perkins, Chloe Living in...Italy, illustrated by Tom Woolley. NONFICTION. Simon & Schuster, 2016. $16.99.

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.
