Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book provides information about the state of Georgia's geography, history, government, economy, people, and landmarks. Important societal issues are covered, including the Civil Rights Movement, the state's environmental problems, issues of race and issues of gun control. At the end of the book, the reader will find a state survey with summarizing tables, including the state's geography, a timeline, facts on the economy, a calendar of celebrations, celebrities who reside there, travel highlights and the state song. The reference section provides a list of books, videos and Internet sites for further research. The book also features many photos, inserts, tables and graphics that help make the reading interesting, although very young readers might still find the writing a little dry. The author's fair and objective presentation make this book a very good starting point for readers who have a special interest in or who are researching the state of Georgia. Part of the "Celebrate the States" series. 2000, Benchmark Books, $35.64. Ages 8 up. Reviewer: Ute Krappen-Clancy
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-These logically organized, and well-documented overviews present thorough and eye-pleasing information for reports. Each book begins with quotes from famous residents of the state, followed by sections on geography, history, culture, and travel. Interesting sidebars appear throughout the texts, commenting on endangered species, battles, or holidays. The state song and a recipe utilizing a state product are included. Numerous full-color photos, graphs, and maps extend the texts and contribute to the attractiveness of this series. While these books tend to promote a rosy view of the states, the material is reliable and easily accessible.-Kate McLean, DeKalb County Public Library, Tucker, GA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
