Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Did you know that Maryland's state dog is the Chesapeake Bay Retriever? Had you learned that all the lakes in the state are man-made? Did you realize that western Maryland has the highest peak in Maryland, reaching 3,360 feet on Backbone Mountain? These facts as well as many other interesting facts are in this educational book. Learn about the plants, animals, and the people of the state. Find out about the history of Maryland with the famous Calvert family and others. Did you know that the Star Spangled Banner was written on a ship in the Baltimore Harbor? See how Maryland played a part in the Underground Railroad. Learn about famous people such as Babe Ruth and Edgar Allen Poe. Most information that one would want to know about the state of Maryland is covered in this book. The pictures help the reader to "see" more of this beautiful state. This book is very easy to read and would be a great tool to use in the classroom. It is one in the "It's My State" series. 2003, Benchmark Books, White
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-These titles are visually appealing and full of facts. Topics targeted in state standards are well covered: physical description, history, people, government, and employment. Headings are used effectively throughout while single- and double-page inserts add interest and information. Most of the full-color photos are attractive, but a few are somewhat dark. Each book also includes a historical craft activity-a model of a longhouse in Maryland, and a diorama of the O'Leary cow story (Great Chicago Fire) in Illinois. Overall, both selections are strong entries for states sections.-Janie Schomberg, Leal Elementary School, Urbana, IL Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
