Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Green
Arkansas' geographic features, as well as its history, government, people, and landmarks are covered in this 144-page celebration of what is known as the Natural State. Many color pictures throughout show the spirit and splendor of the nation's 25th state. Nicely supplemented by a "state survey," and a just-the-facts presentation of state information (such as the song, seal, timeline, plants, and much more). Also includes a glossary, index, and list of further resources (books, videos, CD-ROM, and Internet sites). This latest in the "Celebrate the States" series is a well-researched and easy-to-read account of Arkansas.
