School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-4-Each of these slim books begins with a simple colorful map (without a scale) pinpointing several cities and sites and a list of facts that note the population, size, major industries, etc. The double-page sections that follow cover the history, the capital and flag, the seal and motto, bird, tree, flower, and other symbols. Each page of the straightforward text is opposite a full-page color photo or emblem. The typeface is large, there is plenty of white space, and the photographs, although unimaginative, are large and well reproduced. The appendixes contain short lists of useful addresses. Overall, these accessible titles offer the information that children need when starting state reports. Students seeking more in-depth material should consult the "From Sea to Shining Sea" series (Children's).-Dona J. Helmer, College Gate School Library, Anchorage, AK (c) Copyright 2010.
