Grade 3-6?Brief overviews of major U.S. sights of interest. Monuments includes George Washington Carver National Monument, Mesa Verde National Park, and the Cabrillo National Monument as well as various presidential memorials in Washington, DC. Each two-page spread features a full-page photograph with a small map inset and a few paragraphs that include history and description along with a fact box. A list of additional monuments and memorials and an Internet home page address for each featured entry are appended. National Parks and Rivers are similar in scope. The information in the back of each book makes these titles useful as resources for reports, and the texts are good for reading aloud as an introduction to a social studies unit or for pure learning pleasure. The colorful photographs will capture the interest of lower-ability readers. Unfortunately, there is no map of the U.S. to show the location of these areas in relation to the rest of the country. Nevertheless, they are useful additions.?Stephani Hutchinson, Pioneer Elementary School, Sunnyside,
