Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tim Whitney
Each book in this series does an excellent job in showcasing its state. The text is clearly written and accompanied by frequent maps, charts, and color photographs. Besides presenting information on geography, history, government, and economy, the text also includes brief biographies of well-known people who are native to the state. Includes an index and a section for further reading.
Children's Literature
In Louisiana readers will encounter a part of the Unites States that retains a unique and exotic culture. Cajun and Creole culture make up a part of Louisiana's social fabric; they are elements that stand out as representative of the diverse history experienced in that part of the South. This particular work is part of a broader series titled "Celebrate the States," and incorporates a combination of sound text with numerous photographs to tell the story of its subject. Readers of this work will encounter sections dealing with local history, culture, economic developments, environmental issues, and the vibrancy of Louisiana's people. In light of the terrible events associated with Hurricane Katrina, it is all together fitting and proper that some attention be paid to the people who have made Louisiana such a vital part of America's cultural legacy. In Louisiana readers will experience an informative journey as the author takes them through a concise look at a state with a rich history and a troubled present. 2006, Benchmark Books/Marshall Cavendish, Ages 14 up.

Gr 4-7Although most of the information here can be found in other titles, these volumes are written in a spirited manner. Quotations from famous, infamous, and unknown citizens are sprinkled throughout the texts, adding to the lively style. The authors write with an appreciation of their states' history, characteristics, and inhabitants. The information is up-to-date; Oregon includes discussions of the 1996 flood and the arrival of Keiko, the killer whale of Free Willy fame. Each book is divided into sections on geography, history, government and economy, people, achievements, and landmarks. The full-color photographs, the large detailed representations of the states' flags and seals, and the inclusion of the words and music for each state's song are big selling points. A typical recipe is also highlighted. The "Find Out More" sections list not only books, but also videos, CD-ROMs, and web sites. Unfortunately, there are a few flaws. The maps are not keyed. The Oregon Trail is discussed, but not shown. Although Anne Rice is quoted several times in Louisiana, she is not listed among the "State Stars." In Oregon, a typographical error has Dick Fosbury competing in the summer Olympics at age one. However, these criticisms are minor. There are so many good points to these titles that they will enhance any collection.Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
