School Library JournalGr 4-6–Combining information about history, geography, culture, and political structure in an attractive format, these books are divided into five chapters that discuss the state's land, history, government, economy, and famous natives. The “Past and Present” component is provided through numerous sidebars that connect the history and current status of a wide array of topics, such as natural resources, agriculture, industry, and environmental issues that are important to an understanding of the place. The texts are supplemented with maps; average-quality photos, reproductions, and illustrations; and an extensive bibliography. These titles will give students both basic report information and an interesting perspective on how a state's past affects its present.
