Children's LiteratureThis engaging and informative book about the state of Arkansas is part of the "Rookie Read-About Geography" series. On the first page of this delightful text the reader will be hooked by the question, where can you visit a diamond mine? The print in this book is large and the sentences are simple and engaging. The reader is asked to find Arkansas on a colorful and well marked map, there is a pronunciation key for hard-to-pronounce proper nouns, and the information about Arkansas is interesting and age appropriate. The reader has an opportunity to learn basic geographic facts about this south central state and to see photographs of caves, the mountains, hot springs, farm land, pine forests, and the capital city of Little Rock. The text is informative and the high quality, engaging photographs create enthusiasm for learning more about Arkansas. The final page of this text, which includes a photograph of a young girl swinging on a carnival ride at the Arkansas State Fair, asks the reader what they like most about Arkansas. From the first to last page, this is a great little book about that state of Arkansas, at a great price. It would be a valuable addition to any elementary school classroom or a treasure in a child's home library. Any child who reads this book will want to read the whole series. 2004, Scholastic, and Ages 4 to 8.
