Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
Part of the "True Book: U.S. Regions" series, this book gives a more in-depth look at the southwest region of the United States. All books in this series invite young readers to discover the truths contained within by offering two statements on the first page: one true and one false. Children are challenged to read the book to discover which statement is the false one. This book is about the four states that make up the southwest region. Rau gives an overview of the history of the region, from the early Native American nations through the Spanish colonization and the Mexican-American War to becoming one of the fastest-growing population areas in the United States. Rau also describes the animals, the landforms and the climate that make this region unique. She explains the economic factors that shape the southwestern states and lists a few of the artists and inventors who call the southwest region home. Gorgeous, full-color photographs and simple text make the information easily accessible for young readers, while the challenge of discovering the one false statement will keep older readers turning pages. A list of resources, including books, websites and even places to visit, makes this book a terrific starting point for any child who wants to learn more about the southwestern states. Rau also includes an index, as well as a glossary and a summary of the statistics covered in the book for easy reference. This series would be an excellent addition to any home or school library.
