Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Each entry in the "Hello USA" series is similar in format with four narrative sections covering the land, history, people and economy, and the environment. A fifth "All About..." section includes fun and other facts, state song, a recipe, historical timeline, outstanding citizens with pictures and short bios, places to visit, annual events, state wildlife and an annotated bibliography of school resources and fiction set in the state. The environmental section focuses primarily on the problem of farm waste runoff and pollution of local rivers and streams. A political map showing the principal cities and national forests faces a physical map of geological regions, elevation and other features. A later map indicates principal products but would benefit from being superimposed on a political map so readers see the connections. Separate short outtake sections include one about the Hanging Judge of Fort Smith and the fiddle tune of the Arkansas Traveler. Also covered is the Civil Rights movement and Little Rock, the Ozarks, the largest military base in the state and bluegrass music roots. Illustrations are well chosen from modern, historical, archival and artistic sources. All in all, this is a useful, specific, varied and well-organized introduction to the state and one that will assist report writers, would-be tourists or the merely curious equally well. Endmatter includes web sites, a glossary and proper names pronunciation guide and an index. 2002, Lerner Publications, $25.26 and $6.95. Ages 9 to 14. Reviewer: Susan Hepler
