Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
Part of the "True Book: U.S. Regions" series, this book gives a terrific overview of the varied and beautiful landforms 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 centers around the varied and unique landforms that make each region of the United States beautiful. Rau explains the different geologic processes that create mountains and valleys, canyons and caves, such as volcanoes, plate tectonics, wind and water erosion, and glaciers. 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 United States geography. 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.
