Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sarah Raymond
Mr. Geo loves to travel around exploring all the various states in the United States of America. In this particular book in the series Green Light Readers Level 3 Series Celebrating…,” Mr. Geo is traveling through the great state of New York. His first stop is none other than New York City. He takes time to visit Time Square, Broadway, The Empire State Building and Central Park, but he does not stop there. New York is a big state with a lot of different sites to see including the Erie Canal, Niagara Falls and various battle sites of the American Revolution. Mr. Geo hits upon many different aspects of New York including sports teams and famous people. Although the topics are covered superficially, it gives readers a great introduction to the state of New York. The “Did you know” facts on the bottom of the various pages give readers fun little extra tidbits to deepen their knowledge. The illustrations are beautiful, fun to look at and useful in gaining a peek at the great state. Reviewer: Sarah Raymond; Ages 6 to 10.

Gr 1–3—Mr. Geo, guide and teacher figure, takes children on a tour of these two states. Each page introduces a place, historical event, or topic, offering report-ready facts in a narrative format. Florida struggles to work material into the colorful and active pages, focusing mainly on Disney and the beach, which may be what beginning readers already know about the state. New York does a better job of integrating factual content into the text, much of it historical and about New York City, but even independent readers may struggle with some vocabulary. The illustrations and text layouts make these books appear easier than they really are. The vocabulary is fairly specific and advanced. The glossaries clarify some of the unusual words, but new readers may still be frustrated without further explanations of words and topics. As supplements to state-specific material, these books might pique interest in a state or point children to topics for further reading.—Leila Sterman, Chappaqua Library, NY
