School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-8-These logically organized, and well-documented overviews present thorough and eye-pleasing information for reports. Each book begins with quotes from famous residents of the state, followed by sections on geography, history, culture, and travel. Interesting sidebars appear throughout the texts, commenting on endangered species, battles, or holidays. The state song and a recipe utilizing a state product are included. Numerous full-color photos, graphs, and maps extend the texts and contribute to the attractiveness of this series. While these books tend to promote a rosy view of the states, the material is reliable and easily accessible.-Kate McLean, DeKalb County Public Library, Tucker, GA (c) Copyright 2010.
