Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Did you realize that Ohio is the leading producer of tomato juice in the United States? Were you aware that the original meaning of the Iroquois term "Ohio" was "great water?" Did you know that Ulysses S. Grant and Annie Oakley were both born in Ohio? These and many other facts about Ohio can be found in this concise book. Ohio is part of a multi-volume parent series titled "Portraits of the States," and, as such, follows a common format. The short text focuses upon themes such as local history, economics, state governance, people, and natural wonders. Throughout the text the editors have placed quite a number of illustrations linked to modern points of interest and history. In addition, text boxes occur with some frequency. These inserts spotlight noteworthy Ohioans or other points of interest linked to the state. In the end, Ohio fulfills its purpose as a workmanlike introduction to this state and a book that will be helpful to elementary level readers studying it.
