Review:

Nobody's born knowing the capital of Wyoming, but kids can put an end to their geographic struggles with the Scholastic Atlas of the United States. This slick, well-organized reference is perfect for browsing--the states are arranged by region, and each is explored on a two-page spread with a colorful map, table of facts, and a short essay on its history, economy, and more. Each state is also highlighted on a map of the continental U.S. and a specific aspect of the region's natural resources, weather, or economy is explained in an accompanying chart. Appendices cover U.S. territories and historical and geographical dimensions of the country as a whole. Whether your student is helping to plan a trip to Cheyenne or writing a report on the mighty Mississippi River, this atlas serves as a solid resource. (Ages 7 and older) --Rob Lightner

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-This atlas is organized by region, then alphabetically by state. Each double-page state entry includes a nearly full-page, easy-to-read color map noting major towns, bodies of water, highways, hints of topography, natural resources, and national parks. Framing the map is a list of fast facts (nickname, capital, motto, population and rank, state flower, tree, bird, and sometimes fish) and a "Did You Know?" tidbit. The opposite page includes three paragraphs of text and small captioned photographs, charts, and maps, and a picture of the state flag. The information provided is minimal but should answer all the questions for those first reports on the individual states. Problematically, there is no introductory labeled map showing the entire U.S. However, there are useful appendixes with large, colorful maps depicting time zones, Atlantic and Pacific possessions, population density, major river systems, geographic regions, and territorial expansion. While a number of other resources including the Children's Millennium Atlas of the United States (Rand McNally, 1999) provide more substantive treatment of the topic, the Scholastic Atlas is a serviceable resource.-John Palmer, Bryan & College Station Library System, Bryan, TX
