Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
One of several books in the "My Look and See State Book" series, the format for all is the same. Open a spread and the text is revealed on the left and a very large flap covers most of the right hand page. It asks the questions "What am I?" and "What could I be?" Kids can hazard a guess or immediately lift the flap and get the answer. Each title imparts interesting facts about the state animals, flowers and points of interest that may make it different from others. I was surprised to learn that the monarch butterfly is the state insect, but already knew about a dinosaur named Sue in the Field Museum and that the white oak tree is the state tree. Violets, cardinals, corn and Abraham Lincoln are a few of the other tidbits offered in this title. The illustrations are large and colorful and tend toward the humorous—none of the animals looks the least bit frightening. All the information is reprised visually on the final page along with an outline of the state. It is amusing and full of little bits of trivia, but hardly a comprehensive look at this state which varies greatly from the Chicago area on Lake Michigan to the vast farmland and prairies of the interior.
