Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One in the "Celebrate the States" series, this thorough examination of the state of South Carolina includes geography, history, its people, government, economy, and landmarks within its six chapters. Designed for middle school students, the visually appealing book is enhanced with maps, photos—both period and contemporary—graphs, and illustrations to foster understanding. South Carolina has a long and sometimes troubled history and both are represented in a balanced manner. It is written in way that informs yet is interesting for young readers. Facts and figures are up to date, except for the late Strom Thurman being the longest running senator, an achievement recently surpassed by another. A survey of the state's icons, a copy of the state song, geographical facts, an historical time line, a calendar of special events, a list of products produced, a list of famous natives, and highlights of tourist sites are located at the end of the book. Sources for further study and an index are also included. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
