Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Motor City, as Detroit is sometimes called, is only one of the many interesting spots in Michigan explains this book in the "This Land is Your Land" series. It's arranged in easy to use sections. The beginning describes Michigan's best known features. Then there are two maps. One shows where Michigan sits within the U.S. The other is a detailed state map. These maps are accompanied by a description of the state's geographical features, from the shores of Lake Michigan to the woods and lakes of the Upper Peninsula. A brief history section describes the Native Americans who were living there when the French and British explorers arrived. The state and local governments are described, along with typical occupations in factories and agriculture. The section on "Getting to Know Michiganians" describes the state's festivals and famous people. A section on exploring Michigan encourages young travelers to historic sites and museums, including the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum. The back of the book provides important dates, a glossary, interesting facts, state symbols, recipes, the state song, brief biographies of famous Michiganians, and lists of books, websites, and addresses for more information. This is a must have for any school library. 2003, Compass Point Books, Ages 8 to 12.
