Join the children’s department as we continue our Year of Travel and head to Brazil for February.
Brazil, officially known as the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in South America. It covers 3.2 million square miles (the United States is 3.7 million square miles) and has over 208 million people. Brazil is composed of a union of 26 states.
Brazil is the world’s fifth-largest country by area and the sixth most populous. Its capital is Brasília, and its most populated city is São Paulo. It is the largest country to have Portuguese as an official language. It is also one of the most multicultural and ethnically diverse nations, due to over a century of mass immigration from around the world.
