Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Revised editions, these report-oriented titles are easier than World Book entries. Each one begins with a chapter on a special feature of the state (New York's hook is city subways; Texas's stereotype, country music), followed by chapters on the land, people, history, businesses, and tourism. Appendixes include time lines, famous folks, vocabulary (such as "borough" for New York and "longhorn" for Texas), and an arbitrary handful of Internet sites. The texts are comprised of dust-dry declarative sentences and suffer from sloppy editing when, for example, the statement "Hispanics make up 32 percent of the Texas population" faces a photograph with the caption "One out of every five Texans is Hispanic." Prefaced with a few "fast facts," the titles are nevertheless attractive, simplistic-by-design ("Texas is a big state") entries into the colorful world of nonfiction. They might serve as stepping stones to more rigorous encyclopedia entries or single treatments found in other series such as "America the Beautiful" (Children's).-John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
