9780761415244: Wisconsin (It's My State!)

An easy-to-use source of quick and reliable information, It's My State! helps young readers identify what is common to and unique about individual states across America. Of special interest is the liberal use of the real words of actual state residents -- both famous and ordinary, historical and contemporary. Fully illustrated with captioned photographs and easy-to-read icons, each book in the series provides a broad overview of the state in question, from a concise geography and detailed history to a discussion of its government and economy. Also provided are abundant key facts, figures, people and dates; information about plants and animals as well as products and resources; a calendar of events; an historical timeline; and much more.

Beginning with California, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York and Texas, It's My State! will prove invaluable to young researchers writing their first state reports.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-Five chapters cover everything from the animals and plants of the Badger State, famed Wisconsinites, government, and weather to resources and jobs. Amid all this is a recipe for making cheese, which is easy enough for kids to do with some adult help. Rosemaling is also introduced, and students are encouraged to try their hands at the Norwegian art of plate decorating. Some trivia exposed here includes the fact that beautiful Door County got its name from early sailors referring to the area as "Death's Door." Readers also learn that the polka is the official state dance and Old Abe, a stuffed eagle, stands watch over the Wisconsin state assembly. The book includes the state flag, symbol, and the words and music to the state song. Clear, full-page photographs, trivia bubbles, large type, and multiethnic representation of the 30th state are a few of the selling points. With enough information for reports and enough interest for browsers, this up-to-date title is a solid choice.
