Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This "Land of Liberty" series entry includes information about the state's geography, weather, history, government, economy, and people. Text is straightforward and informational, unmarred by italicized vocabulary (although there is a glossary), and current with today's newspapers. Featured are sidebars, maps, an almanac of statistics, a timeline of important events, famous quotes, trivia facts, a recipe that applies to the state's agricultural strengths, and reader-pleasing notes about pro sports including a note that Florida hosts more bowl games than any other state. Sidebars include information about Henry Flagler who helped found Standard Oil Company and the railroad that stretched from Jacksonville to Key West, alligators, hurricanes, and one meager sentence about the citrus industry, which most children will wish to know more about other than that it is there. Useful for report writers, the information is easily locatable, with an index, more suggested informational but not fiction-based reading, and one Internet site that is an omnibus location set up and updated by the publisher to key readers to useful sites with more information about the Sunshine State. 2003, Capstone Press,
