Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This user-friendly reference book about Vermont comes from the revised "Hello U.S.A." series. The series includes the fifty states, plus Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. Readers will find nearly everything they need to know about the Green Mountain State and probably even more. Did you know that the name, Vermont, comes from the French words vert (for "green") and mont (for "mountain")? Vermont is also known for its limestone and marble quarries, its fertile farmland, and its long and harsh winters. The rich history of Vermont is well-covered, and there are additional chapters about the people, the economy, and the environment. Perhaps the most satisfying section of the book is the final part, "All About Vermont." It includes a wealth of information, such as Fun Facts, the state song, a recipe for maple cookies, an historical timeline, a list of outstanding Vermonters, pertinent Facts-at-a-Glance, several charts and graphs, places to visit and annual events. The bibliography contains both books and websites for further exploration of the state. 2002, Lerner, $25.26 and $6.95. Ages 7 up. Reviewer: Catherine Campbell Wright<%ISBN%>0822540746
