Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sarah Maury Swan
I, of course, was delighted to find mention of my great-great grandfather's umbrella company under the "Fun Facts" section of the Maryland addition to the "Celebrate the States" series. The book gives a fairly comprehensive overview of Maryland's diverse geography, peoples, businesses, activities, places of interest, and historical impacts. Did you know Maryland was the birth place of baseball players Babe Ruth and Cal Ripkin, among others? That poet Edgar Allen Poe lived there and Phyllis Naylor Reynolds still lives here? That Thurgood Marshall, first African-American to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, lived in Baltimore? That in a single day you can go from mountains high enough to ski down to the ocean? The photography is quite nice. I was disappointed in almost non-existent mention of Maryland's many parks, especially the Patapsco State Park, which stretches from western Howard County to Baltimore's Inner Harbor with very few breaks. Plus, I did not see any reference to the presidential retreat Camp David, which is secreted away in the mountains near Thurmont. The authors mention that Maryland ceded land to the Federal Government on which to make our nation's capital city—Washington, D.C. They say D.C. is bordered by Maryland counties; they do not name the counties. All in all, I would say this book is a good reference. I did find the language a tad old in places for middle grade, the target audience, I think. Reviewer: Sarah Maury Swan
