Getting to know others. Earlier, characters were magical symbols. Only a few people knew what they meant. Later, the characters lost their symbolic nature. Today, letters have no meaning. They only have a meaning when they are combined with other letters. Characters such as that of the Chinese function differently. They resemble pictures and often depict what they mean. When we write, we are encoding our thoughts. We use characters to record our knowledge.

I bought this book to read with my daughter because we might possibly move to Germany next year. I would recommend it for ages 6 or 7 up to maybe 11 or 12. It's very well-illustrated, and the information is presented in an interesting way, neither overly-simplified nor too in-depth (keeping in mind the elementary-age target audience). It is also well organized, containing sections on the regions of Germany, German cuisine, Germany's history, children in Germany, and festivals, among others. What I especially like, besides the many useful illustrations, are the German vocab words on each page, and the fact that the variety in Germany's different regions is emphasized, so the country is not presented as one homogenized Bavarian stereotype. I should mention that the book (at least the edition I have) was published in 1993, and so gives the Mark as Germany's currency. This didn't bother me because I used it as an opportunity to explain to my daughter the change from the Mark to the Euro. It was written post-reunification, so all other information is pretty much up-to-date. It's published by Barron's, which to me is a pretty good indicator of quality for this sort of publication. I gave it four stars because it's from 1993; otherwise, I would definitely give it five.
I just ordered and received this book and have only begun to put it to good use. But from what I can see, it is going to be a lovely addition to my extensive collection of German books for children - packed with quality material that is put forth in a way that is appealing to children.

I did notice one very dated piece of information in the book, however -- it still refers to the Deutsch Mark and the Pfennig as the German currency. Germany has used the Euro for some time now. This makes an interesting bit of history, actually, and I don't mind it too much, but it could disappoint someone who is looking for the most up-to-date info. That's why I gave the book only 4 stars.
Kids enjoyed. Plenty of fun things to learn.
This is a great non-fiction book for children; it can be used in a classroom setting! I think the kids will like the illustrations too!
