Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
Fifty unique and interesting states are joined together to create the United States of America. From the original thirteen colonies to the addition of multiple territories, there is a lot of variety in the people and places of the United States. Author Patricia Wooster shares basic information about America’s government, habitats, climate, national parks, and landmarks in this highly illustrated picture book in the “My First Picture Encyclopedia” series. More than one hundred facts and definitions cover a wide range of topics related to America, from a list of the major mountain ranges and plains to the country’s quirkiest tourist attractions. The book includes a colorful map of the fifty states and a second map that shows the four regions: West, Midwest, Northeast, and South. It also includes a spread that features each state’s flag. An editor’s note to parents, teachers and librarians indicates the book is designed to provide an early introduction to reference materials. All books in the series include a table of contents and a page with additional resources. The publisher’s targeted audience, students in preschool to second grade, seems ambitious, given the vocabulary and level of comprehension required to make a sensible whole from so many unique entries. Children may enjoy browsing through the book, but those accustomed to a narrative will need guidance to understand how to use it as a reference book. Reviewer: Keri Collins Lewis AGERANGE: Ages 4 to 8.
