"Each of these well-done titles briefly outlines the state's history, politics, government, culture, etc., and includes numerous colorful sidebars, charts, graphs, maps, and photographs that illustrate or supplement the texts... The coverage is more complete than in the 'Hello U.S.A.' series (Lerner)... The 'From Sea to Shining Sea' series (Children's) has long been a staple, but most libraries will want to consider adding these books."
