Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Learn about the rich and important history of New Hampshire. One of the thirteen colonies, it was the first to relinquish its dependency on England. This book covers the state's people and their various ethnicities, scenery such as the breathtaking White Mountains, the economy and commerce of the state, the government, the culture, biographies of notable people, and how it holds the first presidential primary each presidential election year. The well-written text is concise and easy to follow. Full color photos, drawings, black and white photos complement the text. There is a timeline that compares other events that occurred in the United States during the history of the state. Additional features include a table of contents, maps, charts, a list of books for further reading, Internet sites, and an index. The layout helps to create the sense that the reader is visiting the state without ever leaving his or her chair. It is a great addition for the classroom and school library and will assist in report writing, class projects, and/or study units. A volume in the "World Almanac Library of the States" series. 2003, World Almanac Library, Ages 10 up.
