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 4-7?Completely rewritten and updated, these books contain a wealth of information useful for school reports, vacation planning, or simply armchair traveling. Several chapters on the history of the state begin each book; sections on geography, government and politics, the economy, diversity of the population, education, arts and leisure, famous citizens, and museums and historical sites follow. Colorful photos, maps, drawings, and archival reproductions are well integrated into the clearly written texts. The numerous sidebars are new to this edition and cover everything from historical figures to El Ni?o to Louisiana hot sauce. Words to the state song and one recipe are included in each book, along with a two-page spread detailing the state symbols. Each volume ends with a time line comparing state and national events and a "Fast Facts" section. Excellent choices for both public and school libraries for those perennial state reports. These volumes are longer and contain more information than the "From Sea to Shining Sea" series (Children's).?Terrie Dorio, Santa Monica Public Library, CA
