Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book is a complete guide for anyone who is looking for an easy-to-read overview of the state of Maine. The book includes chapters on the state's geography, history, government, economy, people and culture. The book describes in detail the state's capital city, Augusta. The color photos and maps throughout the book add greatly to the text and create a publication that is likely to hold the attention of older elementary school children. Many sections of the book turn learning into fun. For example, the book gives information on Maine's "Famous Firsts." Do you know that Maine had the first sawmill in America, the first forest fire, and the first female novelist? It is also the first state in America in which women voted. Sidebars are included throughout the book entitled "Extra! Extra!" and "Who's Who in Maine?" There is even one recipe in the book, "patriotic pie," which is prepared with Maine blueberries. The book concludes with a list of Maine governors, an organizational chart of Maine's governmental structure, a timeline of the state's history, and a "Gallery of Famous Mainers." There is also a bibliography which includes websites, books, and tourism offices. This book is in the "From Sea to Shining Sea Series." 2003, Children's Press, Ages 8 to 12.
