Brazil is the 5th largest country by area in the world and the 6th largest country by population. It is about the same size as the continental United States (the part of the US without Hawaii or Alaska).

Rich in diversity due to immigration and the legacy of colonialism, there is a great variety of foods, dances, music, and art that makes Brazil unique.

Note for parents: Before you share with your children, listen to the podcast episode Exploring Brazilian Culture and learn more yourself before embarking on an exploration as a family.
