Ann Heinrichs grew up in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and lives in Chicago. She is the author of more that one hundred books for children and young adults on Asian, African, and U.S. history and culture. Ann has also written numerous newspaper, magazine, and encyclopedia articles. She is an award-winning martial artist, specializing in t’ai chi empty-hand and sword forms. Ann has traveled widely throughout the United States, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. In exploring each state for this series, she rediscovered the people, history, and resources that make this a great land, as well as the concerns we share with people around the world.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5–These books offer rollicking road trips through these states. The format is reminiscent of a familys vacation scrapbook. On each spread, simple, economic text and a photograph of a park, festival, or historic site faces an outline map of the state and its bordering areas. A red station wagon loaded with family and luggage shows the location of the photographed site opposite. On both pages, fact boxes that look like road signs are scattered about. These attractive, kid-friendly books contain a great deal of information. They complement the From Sea to Shining Sea and America the Beautiful series (both Childrens Press).–Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH
