About this title


Colorado is home of the world’s first rodeo. Its mile-high city, Denver, has the largest city park system in the nation. It’s truly a state of interesting and beautiful details. This book introduces kids to the many wonders the Centennial state has to offer, from cosmopolitan cities to wild mountain peaks.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-3 Victims of oversimplification, these titles have little content and an abundance of misconceptions and misinformation. The first sentence of Colorado refers to it as an American state. Should it not be a U.S. state? The Rockies are said to lie in waves across Colorado, which is a very unusual description. Companies are described as mining strong metals, but it is anyone's guess as to what they are. Kansas is an even bigger disaster. The pre-Civil War attack by Jayhawkers at Pottawatomie Creek is accurate in that five Bushwhackers were killed, but the one-sentence explanation of its cause is totally inadequate. The attack was, as stated, in retaliation for the attack on Lawrence, KS, but the text fails to mention that Bushwhackers had attacked and virtually destroyed the city, murdering approximately 150 people in the process. The author continues to promote the myth that Kansas is as flat as a pancake. It is obvious that he has not visited the Flint Hills of eastern Kansas or the Gyp Hills of south central Kansas. The amount of rainfall is not the only factor that determines the height of the prairie grasses. Different locales have different kinds of grasses. To say that oil and helium are mined is a misnomer. Though it is an important part of U.S. history, it is unclear as to why the author chose to include Brown vs. Board of Education. It appears that Kansas was the only place that had school segregation. There is nothing in these books that cannot be found in many superior series.
