STATE BY STATE ATLAS

Authors: Justine Ciovacco, Kristen Behrens, & Kathleen A. Feeley

A home reference and travel companion for children eager to know more about America, State by State Atlas shows in maps, pictures, illustrations, and fact boxes how each state fits into its part of the union. Arranged regionally to give readers an overview of the distinct areas of the country, this book creates a clear and easy to understand way of learning American geography and culture. Each state's landscape, industry, agriculture, population, history, and folkways are explored in a vibrant information book children will want to use throughout their school age years.

From School Library Journal
Grade 4-8--This visually attractive guide to the states divides the nation into seven major regions. For each area, a short time line lists events as diverse as the Battle of Gettysburg and the completion of Mt. Rushmore. The spread for each state offers information on the bird, flower, tree, population, ranking in statehood, and land area. Two paragraphs of general description and history introduce the state, while additional bits of information in caption form are provided. A short profile of a historical figure or current celebrity is included, such as Madonna from Michigan and Susan B. Anthony from New York. Colorful maps, photos, and drawings alternate with the scattered text. As a supplemental source for state reports, this is an adequate work but most online encyclopedias or even state sites will provide more comprehensive information.--Eva Elisabeth VonAncken, Trinity-Pawling School, Pawling, NY
