By Rocco Dormarunno on July 6, 2004
Format: Paperback
There is a misconception that Michigan is noted only for its industrial cities like Flint and, especially, Detroit. Fortunately, this little volume explains that there is a great deal more to this geographically divided state than meets the eye.
The "Portrait of America" series is a wonderful introduction for pre-teens to the 50 states and to the places and events that shaped the history of the United States. This "Michigan" installment is particularly good. The book is broken down into sections like "History", "Culture", "Economy" etc., and each section is thoughtfully written and edited. The "Economy" section is especially good and is very inclusive.
This book, as well as the entire "Portrait of America" series, will prove to be a valuable teaching tool to all primary school educators.
