Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Red, White and True American history comes alive in an array of patriotic offerings. Billed as "a young reader's guide to the history, geography and culture of all 50 states," The New Big Book of America by Todd Davis and Marc Frey delivers the goods on a state-by-state basis; colorful maps and photos are included, and sidebars profile important people and events.

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 3-5-This oversized guide devotes one page to each of the 50 states, giving a general historical, geographical, and cultural overview. Each entry includes basic facts; a topographic map; a few descriptive paragraphs; and two boxes that highlight individuals, significant events, or other topics. The alphabetical arrangement often provides interesting contrasts between states in different regions. The layout is elegant in its simplicity. A great choice for browsing or curriculum support.-Donna L. Scanlon, Lancaster County Library, PA Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
