Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2004 January)
Gr 3-5-These titles provide basic information for reports. Each one has excellent color photos of the state seal, symbol, bird, tree, etc., as well as little-known symbols such as state hero (Connecticut) and state soil (Florida). However, the only map in each book is very general and highlights only three major cities, the capital, and three places to visit. These revisions of the 1999 editions include more recent population figures, and updated lists for further reading and Internet resources.-Doris Losey, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library, Tampa, FL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
