About this item

From School Library Journal Gr 3-5-These broad overviews are each organized into four chapters that hint at their content, e.g., in Midwest, the chapter on geography, plants, animals, and weather is called "Plains, Bison, and Blizzards." In Southwest, the one on government and economy is titled "Councils and Cattle." The remaining section covers history, people, and food. Wherever possible, subheadings with more standard descriptors like "Geography," "Climate," "Wars," and "Present Day" are consistent across the series. The traditional layout uses highlighted central bars to display a single fact and the caption for the single photo. Two small maps, one political with names abbreviated and one showing land formations and capitals, are included.
