Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Did you know that North Carolina's Outer Banks has been the home of Corolla wild horses since the early 1500s? Or that North Carolina ranks third in peanut production in the country? These facts and more are presented in poetic form in this beautiful nonfiction counting book. Part of a series, "Count Your Way Across the U.S.A.," this title features state symbols, famous people, landmarks, and a history of North Carolina in rhyming text, accompanied by subtle watercolor illustrations. The book counts by ones from one to twenty then switches to tens untill fifty. The book ends with the number one hundred whose page depicts all the counties in the state. Included in the margin of each spread is expository text providing detailed information of that page's topic in rhyme. Although the Wright Brothers connection to North Carolina is highlighted in a special note in the preface, it is odd that no reference to the Wright Brothers is included in the actual book. This title would be useful in the classroom during a geography unit about the states. 2005, Sleeping Bear Press/Thompson Gale, Ages 5 to 8.
—Nancy T. Braverman
