    This reproducible workbook and curriculum guide is from YWM, publishers of the Heroes of History series comes. Though a great companion to the series, it stands alone and doesn't require the use of the biographies. Each of the 50 states (with an extra for the District of Columbia) receives 2 reproducible worksheets in the book. The main worksheet (identical for every state) prompts students to research and find such information as date of statehood, state motto, current population, natural resources, number of representatives in Congress, and more. It also has students identify features like bodies of water, highest point, state capital, bordering states, and more. Students draw and label these features on the second worksheet for the state, which is a black and white outline map of the featured state. A very effective and interactive way to teach state facts to students. The book includes several appendices with valuable items like additional maps and exercises (for the 13 colonies, the Louisiana Purchase, etc.), additional assignments like oral reports and creating timelines, a list of resources for state information, and more.128 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Any description of this atlas has to include a suggestion to view the sample pages online. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words! Looking at this atlas is a visual (and informational) treat. Each state (and Washington D.C.) covers a two-page spread. It has the appearance of looking like a desk blotter; with a journal open showing a map and a brief overview of the state. Surrounding the map are notes, dates, facts, illustrations and trivia "paper clipped" or "taped" in place. Readers are introduced to all of the basics: state birds, flowers, seals, flags, statistics, quarters, events, people, and much more. The maps are topographical with major cities and Interstate highways marked. Thematic maps show farm resources, expansion, population, climate and regions; and the paperback atlas ends with a state almanac and a list of geography terms defined. – Zach

    What study of the states would be complete without a little coloring? Well, it's not really an essential, but it can reinforce the learning. Attractive blackline coloring pages are brimming with information about each of the 50 states, educating as they are colored. Which state is the Sunflower State? The Land of Opportunity? Which state's motto is "Ever Upward"? Informative captions provide each state's nickname, motto, flower, bird, tree, capital, principal rivers and mountains, notable attractions, and other special information.

    Accurate outline drawings of each state are prominent, with a small inset map of the United States showing its location (by shading). Some details, like mountains, rivers, and lakes, appear on the state. The capital's location is starred, but no printed names appear - so you can have your children do a little research and mapwork for extra benefit. This also makes the book usable as a reproducible map source. Surrounding the state are other blackline figures of the state bird, flower, related plant and animal life, and other significant features (New York, for example, includes the Statue of Liberty). Now your students can color their way to U.S. geographic literacy!

    So, why are we offering another map outline book? Well, this one is different from the others, and we just couldn't decide which was "better", because they both would serve a slightly different user. The book begins with a Mercator Projection map of the world, followed by 45 different maps of individual countries or small clusters of countries (too many to list here). Unlike Maps, there is only one, unlabeled, map for each title, and waterways are clearly shown. An inset map of the region is included, with map's location darkened for easy reference. Also included on each page is the area covered by the map in square miles. The U.S. map is marked with state boundaries and waterways. Maps for each of the 50 states appear alphabetically, again with waterways and square miles shown. A U.S. map is inset on each page, clearly showing the location of that state in the U.S. by shading. Basically, there are significantly more country-specific maps in this book, helpful if you need more detailed maps of smaller regions. For example, Germany is its own map in this book whereas it's lumped in a "Northern Europe" map in Maps. In fact, Northern Europe is broken into about four different maps in Blank Map Outlines. None of the maps are labeled, however, so you'll need to refer to an atlas for labeling. The other major difference is the inclusion of waterways (rivers and lakes) in this outline book.

    This colorful atlas is a great way to introduce students to the basic geographic features of the United States. The atlas is divided into several sections. The first section, Map Skills, explains how to read a map. It briefly covers the topics of scale, latitude/longitude, and different types of map projections. The next section, U.S. Themes, has a political map, physical map, and themed maps that show climate, elevation, average temperature, land use, population density, and more. The United States History section presents maps that represent places, populations, or events at different times in our country's history. For example, there are maps that show the routes of early explorers, battles of the American Revolution, the Underground Railroad, and the Vietnam War. The U.S. Regions section takes a closer look at six areas of the country - the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, West, and D.C., Puerto Rico and other islands. Each region has a political map, images of state flags, list of largest cities, and small thematic maps that show land use, population density, and average temperature/precipitation. An index at the end of the section gives the page number, latitude, and longitude for cities, landforms and bodies of water. The book concludes with the Atlas section, which contains political and physical maps of the world, the Western Hemisphere, the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. It also has a map of U.S. time zones and an index. 104 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Lavishly illustrated with maps, photographs and reproduction paintings, this family reference has appeal for Americans of all ages. Defining the character of America in three words - optimism, action and energy, this National Geographic book will teach and entertain its readers. Chapter 1 begins with the settling of America and the people groups who have made us who we are collectively. Profiles on William Penn and Pocahontas are included along with an interesting article entitled, "Can America be a 'City on the Hill'?" which explores America's religious ideals and the reality of greed and materialism. The second chapter looks at the birth of America including early wars and the constitutional convention. Profiles of Thomas Paine and Abigail Adams are included, and the great historical debate between federalists and anti-federalists is summarized. Chapter 3 covers our expanding nation and profiles Thomas Jefferson and Nat Turner. Chapter 4 offers a look at women's rights, slavery, the Civil War and reconstruction with profiles on Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Abraham Lincoln. Industry and Empire are the focus of chapter 5 with profiles of Andrew Carnegie and Chief Joseph. This is followed by the New Deal and the growth of government. Chapter 6 profiles crusader Ida B. Wells-Barnett and Huey Long. Chapter 7 looks at war, prosperity and social changes from 1941-1968, with profiles of Joseph McCarty and Martin Luther King Jr. The final chapter looks at 1969-present with profiles of Sandra Day O'Conner and Cesar Chavez. A key events timeline is found across the bottom of each chapter's first page which adds to the value of this compelling resource. As we consider where America is today, the author leaves us with the discussion point of more or less government in the economy, which is a question that we will continue to grapple with as we strive to progress as a nation.

    Also included is the entire text of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Gettysburg Address and the Declaration of Sentiments as well as a listing of websites to explore, historical places to visit, and many other helpful resources. Whether you utilize this for school research or a coffee table book to be set out and enjoyed, there is much to appreciate within these pages. HC. 240 pgs. ~Deanne

    Written in a similar style to the other Don't Know Much About books, this journey through the 50 states presents several questions and answers about each state as it is covered. Each page features one state (except for Texas, which of course needs two), with a small outline map of the state and other basic facts about the state, including the state bird and flower near the top of the page. Then several questions about the state are posed, some about more basic information about the state, and some involving more trivia-like information, such as "How many trees does it take to make a gallon of maple syrup?" for Vermont,"What is a keystone, anyway?" for Pennsylvania, or "Why were Nebraska's first settlers called 'sodbusters'?" for Nebraska. Other small interesting facts and state jokes are included as well. Also, a complete map of the U.S. is featured inside the front and back covers. Not a comprehensive look at each state, but an entertaining and informative read.

    This workbook can be used as a stand alone study of US geography, or it can be used in conjunction with the book Fifty States Under God to further explore the geography of each state. Arranged in order of statehood, the study of each state is its own lesson, and discuses three key areas: land regions, borders and geographical features, and major cities. Extensive use is made of state maps in each of these areas to help illustrate these points and features. During each lesson on individual states, students are periodically referred back to an overall map of the US, so they definitely get lots of practice finding and placing states and locations across the country. Prior to beginning the lessons on the states, there are 3 lessons covering the geography of the US as a whole as well as a quiz on US geography and an introduction to geography from a Christian perspective. At various points throughout the course, there are 4 geography overview and testing sections, each one encompassing 3 lessons. The appendix contains extra copies of maps, the tests, and the answer keys. There are schedules included for completing the workbook as either a one-semester course or a one-year course, and there is also a page of suggestions for how to schedule this book with Fifty States Under God. The workbook is spiral-bound and softcover. – Zach

    Inviting and sumptuously-illustrated, this book promises a much more "browsable" tour of American history than a textbook could ever provide. Eight chapters cover the history of America from the time of the first European settlements to the present. Each chapter focuses on a particular period in U.S. history, and combines a written account of the history of that time period with a wealth of detailed maps, interesting related articles, period artwork and/or photos and portraits. Each chapter also features one or several focused "profiles", or short biographies, of notable people that lived during that period as well as a "Great Debate" which focuses on an issue which was controversial in that era. The writing is interesting and engaging, and manages to give an overall view of the period while weaving in fascinating details and aspects of daily life for various groups of people who lived during that era as well. Visuals are plentiful here, and offer the reader lots of browsing material. Interesting photos, paintings, ads, documents, and much more spice up every page and offer the reader glimpses into the culture and daily life during each period. Important historical documents, including the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Gettysburg Address, and the Pledge of Allegiance are all included after the last chapter. A list of recommended websites, historic places to visit, dates that states entered the Union, U.S. Presidents and their terms of office, and a bibliography round out this collection. Engaging and educational, yet attractive enough to be a coffee table book, the book delivers on its promise of giving readers an overall look at American history, and the events and people that have made history over the years. I would like to note, however, that like many other secular history books, this one tends to treat the beliefs of the Puritans as equal to the beliefs of the Native Americans, and seems to advocate the belief that because the "white man" believed that he was superior in race and religion, that it was all right to slaughter innocent Native Americans and mistreat slaves, servants, and immigrants of different races. I agree that this is a difficult part of American history to write about, but I get the sense that the tone here is far from objective and may be offensive to more conservative readers. - Jess

    Fifty-two topographical maps (Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico are the extras) form the basis of this guide to the United States. Rivers, lakes, mountains, and main cities are shown in good detail on each map. The surrounding space is filled with pictures of the state bird and flowers, and where applicable, the state insect, dinosaur, gem, tree, or endangered species. Various other facts and trivia are given on each state page, and a strip along the bottom of each page tells the date of statehood, the population, and the area. In the back of the book, a section shows the state flags in color, and the book is drawn to a close by a 5-page topical index. A nifty reference book to have at any time. ~ Zach

    Children will delight in learning about our 50 states (and the District of Columbia) as they devour this quirky book that teaches a bit of history, folklore, geography and ornithology. The state birds are the respective guides to each state and their witty quips along with the fun illustrations offer a completely unique journey through this country! With so much personality from each bird, the competition to be the “Top Tweet” in the United Tweets of America pageant is tight! Each state is covered per 2 pages. An outline of the state is at the top of the page, with a star marking the location of the capital. The state capital and nickname are given, and of course each bird is identified along with brief characteristics.  Additionally, each state page includes tidbits that are fun and will appeal to kids, for example: Montana has the largest grizzly bear population in the lower 48 states and the largest migratory elk population in the U.S. The elk, deer and antelope populations each outnumber the humans. (“tweet” is not a social media reference here!) sc, 64pgs. ~ Deanne
