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, the obligatory chart of the state's governmental plan, famous quotes, trivia facts, a recipe that applies to the state's agricultural strengths, reader-pleasing notes about pro sports, and a mention of Mammoth Cave as well as the horse farms for which Kentucky is so well known. Sidebars include information about Colonel Sanders and his chicken empire, bluegrass music, Henry Clay, and a round-up of famous women in Kentucky. 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 Bluegrass State. 2003, Capstone Press,
