Malaysia became an independent country in 1957 and raised its first flag in 1963. Since then, it has made many strides to become a country that people want to belong to.

Every book describes the history, geography, economy, culture, and relationship each country has with its neighbors. Furthermore, the series will encourage, inspire, and momotivate the young reader to explore this fascinating subject in more depth.
