Children's LiteratureHave your technology skills ready when reading this handy reference book about the state of Massachusetts. This reference guide book, a part of the "MyReportLinks.com Book" series will jumpstart your curiosity with over 30 internet sites ranging from the Mayflower Society to the Salem Witch Museum. Even sports fans will find something of interest in this list with a link to the Boston Red Sox homepage. Although the directions need to be clearer—such as how to find the link to the state of Massachusetts—once students do access the state page, all the websites listed in the book are easy to find. Besides website links, the book also includes fun and interesting facts about the state of Massachusetts. For example, readers will learn that the majority of the citizens work in providing service for others rather than making a product and half of all Nobel Prize winners in the United States have attended colleges in Massachusetts. Readers will also be directed towards fun and informative places to visit if traveling to Massachusetts, such as Fenway Park and the Salem Witch Museum. The book is an ideal choice for supplemental information in a social studies curriculum about the United States. 2003, Enslow Publishers, Ages 8 to 12.
