Children's LiteratureA new title in the "States" series from Enslow Publishers, this compact and sturdy book also has the added bonus of being a "MyReportLinks.Com" book. Not only does the book itself give a wealth of information about our nation's smallest state, it also shows readers where to go on the Internet for more information. These pre-evaluated "report links" are kept up to date on the www.myreportlinks.com Web site, accessible to teachers and librarians purchasing this volume. Furthermore, the publisher will periodically update these links for three years after the book's first publication date. The book itself gives young readers a thorough overview of Rhode Island's topography, climate, economy, government, significant statistics and historical highlights. The pages are cleverly laid out to resemble a computer screen and are amply illustrated with full-color photos. Suggestions for further reading "off line" (printed media) and a complete subject index round out the book's features. The information contained between this book's covers is easy to access and of interest to young readers, making this a great addition to any library or classroom collection. 2003, MyReportLinks.com Books/Enslow Publishers, Ages 8 to 11.
