Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This "Land of Liberty" series entry includes information about the state's geography, weather, history, government, economy, and people. Text is straightforward and informational, unmarred by italicized vocabulary (although there is a glossary), and current with today's newspapers. Included are sidebars, maps, an almanac of statistics, a timeline of important events, a pie chart of the state's ethnic or cultural makeup, famous quotes, trivia facts, a recipe that applies to the state's agricultural strengths, and reader-pleasing notes about pro sports, plus a mention of the Rockettes and the entertainment industry in New York City, a fair treatment of areas outside the city, and several paragraphs about the events of 9/11. Sidebars include notes on Wall Street, Times Square on New Years' Eve, the Hamilton-Burr duel, Niagara Falls, and the origins of "Uncle Sam." Useful for report writers, the information is easily locatable, with an index, more suggested informational but not fiction-based reading, and one Internet site that is an omnibus location set up and updated by the publisher to key readers to useful sites with more information about the Empire State. 2003, Capstone Press,
