Take a trip around the world with the latest entries in the Enchantment of the World series. From the volcanoes of Iceland to the hilltop castles of Germany, readers are transported to distant lands with the fascinating text and attention-grabbing photos in these books. Each country's culture, history, and geography are explored in detail, allowing readers a chance to see how people live in faraway nations.

A tropical paradise in the southwest Pacific Ocean, the natural beauty of the Philippines has earned the island nation the nickname "The Pearl of the Orient Sea." Readers will explore the rice history of the Philippines, from how its 7,107 islands were first settled to what role the country has played in world history. They will also learn about the Philippines' government, rich culture, diverse plant and animal life, and much more.
