Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Wisconsin is a beautiful place and this book, part of the "This Land is Your Land" series, describes many of the state's features. Easy to use sections describe the state's terrain. And two maps show where it is located within the greater United States and the other is a detailed state map. Another section describes the Native Americans who lived in the region before the arrival of French explorers and English colonists. The sections on modern Wisconsin describe state and local governments and describe common occupations within the state, such as dairy farming, mining, and service jobs. The section entitled "Getting to Know Wisconsinites" describes the state's festivals, actors, writers, and artists. A section on exploring Wisconsin encourages young travelers to visit pioneer villages and museums and to enjoy the state's natural beauty. The back of the book provides important dates, a glossary, interesting facts, state symbols, recipes, the state song, brief biographies of famous Wisconsinites, and a list of books, websites and addresses for more information. This is a must have for any school library. 2003, Compass Point Books, Ages 8 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-These attractive titles, written in a clear and lively style, describe each state's topography, geography, history, government, economics, people, and attractions. Appended information includes a list of important dates, "Did You Know?" facts, various statistics, state symbols, the state song, a recipe, famous people, and a "Want to Know More?" selection of resources. Good-quality, mostly full-color photos add to the overall appeal of the presentations. Despite a couple of typographical errors, these titles are solid additions.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
