The 52-volume World Almanac Library of the States is the most up-to-date state set available, and it's the one School Library Journal calls more complete than its competitors. In addition to an in-depth factual profile of each state, every book offers fascinating and lively discussions of the state's history, people, geography, government, economy, culture, and lifestyles. Each title also includes a section on Notable People, a calendar of events, full-color photos, maps, charts, graphs, time lines and other tools to make this unquestionably the best young adult reference set available.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-What stands out in these overviews is the number of useful tables and statistics scattered throughout. A "Fast Facts" section at the beginning of each book covers most of the questions typically required for state reports. The volumes are well organized, and the crisp layout and well-captioned, color photographs are appealing. Good supplements to the "Enchantment of America" series (o.p.) and "From Sea to Shining Sea" series (both Children's).-Donna L. Scanlon, Lancaster County Library, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
