John M. and Lindsay G., students of Linda Skuhra of Spring Harbor Middle, had this to say about this site: Do you want to learn about the climate and population of Mali? Well if you do, you should go to the World Factbook 2001. This site has information about every country from A to Z. Every page is jam-packed with amazing facts! It is a huge site with every statistic you would want to know about every country in the world. It comes complete with a color picture of the country's flag and a map that has the capital, major cities, and the surrounding countries. The site includes subtopics such as geography, climate, people, military, transportation, communications, transnational issues, government and other important topics.

Have you ever needed to use the internet to find information on a country, but haven't been able to find a good site to use? Have you ever spent hours searching the web, but found practically nothing good to use? I often encountered that problem, until I found the site "World Info Zone." It's a great site with all the information you could possibly use on almost every country. I used it for a report on Jamaica, and it was absolutely great! It has wonderful pictures, interesting facts, and a well-written report covering such things as geography, environment, economy, history, culture, sports, and many other topics. It loads quickly and easily, is well organized, and is up-to-date. I found tons of good information to use, and it didn't take very long to get that information. This is an absolutely wonderful site to use for information on a specific country. I highly recommend it.
