Grade 2-4-This slim overview includes a multitude of facts, trivia, and traditions along with a time line and information about the state's government, geography, and people. From the black-and-white photo of an early 1900s' Juneteenth celebration to a color photo of computer-chip inventor Jack Kilby, the diversity of Texas life, and its size, is reflected in revealing half- and full-page photos, illustrations, and maps. A listing of 20 state symbols, the words to the state song, "At a Glance" facts, and even a chili recipe are included. Some illustrations lose effectiveness due to the small size of the book, but this title will be useful for reports.
