Children's Literature
This fascinating reference book is brimming over with amazing and little known facts about the geography of the United States. The unique chapter book explores facts about the United States in two sections. The first section, the U.S. in the World, includes weather, climate, land and water, people and places. Section two includes a look at each state by region. Facts about how each state got its nickname and famous inhabitants are sure to be of interest. The format has easy-to-read text and is enhanced with margin notes, graphs, maps and black-and-white photographs of many natural landmarks. Endnotes include a glossary, bibliography, recommended reading lists by the New York Public Library, Internet resources and an index. This is a very user friendly and useful resource for middle and high school libraries and a good buy for the home library. 2001, New York Public Library/The Stonesong Press,
