School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-These overviews of state history, geography, industry, and economy feature clearly written, well-organized texts lavishly illustrated with excellent-quality photographs. Covering approximately the same scope as the "America the Beautiful" series (Children's), these books feature larger maps, good-sized, clear reproductions of the state flags and seals, and the words and music to the state songs, all of which give this series a slight edge over others. Quotes from residents add a personal dimension to the lively, lucid texts. Sidebars offer detailed information on specific topics and descriptive captions accompany the illustrations. Each book also includes a local recipe and lists of state and geographical facts, a calendar of celebrations, information on famous citizens, and a useful index. The brief "Find Out More" sections include books, videos, and Web sites. Attractive assets to any library.-Donna L. Scanlon, Lancaster Area Library, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
