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–Each title is made up of spreads that include a yellow map with a dotted line and a car, implying a route for a family trip. Places that are not part of a particular journey are also indicated. However, the routes dont appear to follow real highways. For example, in Oregon the pages concerning the Oregon Trail mention the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center in Oregon City, but not the one in Baker City, another great museum on this subject, and the fact that the dotted line goes many miles south of the Trail instead of following it makes no sense. The texts are written in a chatty style but offer sketchy information. Other series are available that give students more of the facts and figures that they needs for reports, such as Hello U.S.A. (Lerner), From Sea to Shining Sea (Childrens Press), Celebrate the States (Benchmark), and America the Beautiful (Childrens Press).–Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
