About the Author:

Jackie Mims Hopkins is a librarian and native Texan who makes her home in Houston. She is the author of GOLDIE SOCKS AND THE THREE LIBEARIANS, THE GOLDMINER'S DAUGHTER: A MELODRAMATIC FAIRY TALE, and THE SHELF ELF.

Review:

Sixteen places in Texas are introduced in a-a-b-b verses. Some rhymes flow off the tongue, while others are harder to read. "In Houston the oil barons crave Texas tea!/That black gold's a priceless commodity./The city hosts NASA and its astronauts/whom Mission Control oversees from this spot," and "Up north in the Panhandle sits Amarillo./There are plenty of cattle, but few armadillo./The Grand Canyon of Texas is something to view./With luck you might spy the horned toad in there, too." Each four-line poem provides facts regarding location and features of the area. Most are commonly known cities: Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and El Paso; others are less recognized, including Gonzales, Kingsville, and Tyler. The realistic colored-pencil illustrations are big and bold and done in dark tones; several different concepts are incorporated on a spread. Acceptable if materials are needed for younger students regarding the state and its diversity. --School Library Journal - February 1, 2010

Bright, colorful illustrations make the pages of Our Texas pop. Part poetry, part prose, this book is a cheerful introduction to the great state of Texas. Rhyming couplets describe features of key sites. Additional features include a large-scale map of Texas and pages highlighting the state gemstone, flower, dish, vegetable, pepper, insect, and small animal, as well as bulleted, factual nuggets of information about the cities themselves. Our Texas portrays the diversity of this state and features the groups that contribute to its unique culture: Native Americans, Latinos, cowboys, soldiers, traders, astronauts, and farmers. From the elementary school teacher who is a teaching a unit on the states, to the casual reader who wants to become familiar with the history and culture of Texas, this book would be an appropriate introduction. It gives just enough information to intrigue and to motivate the reader to learn more. --Library Media Connection - November 1, 2010
