Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1–4—The art in this loving tribute to the state is so colorful, evocative, and eye-filling that it is tempting to review the title solely as a book of pictures. The text takes the form of brief, undistinguished four-line verses that highlight some interesting features in the 14 locales, or give reasons for their historical or current importance. Some of the places are well known (such as San Francisco and Los Angeles) and some will be less familiar to children outside California (such as the Channel Islands and Eureka). The illustrations, done in brilliant acrylics, fill each spread with a burst of folkloric color and energy. The Capistrano swallows, the Forty-Niners in Coloma, the whales and otters along the coast—all are shown. The back matter includes an illustrated spread featuring the state flag, bird, insect, plant, and so on. Further information on all of the places shown is also appended. This book may not be adequate for reports, but it is a wonderful way to show children the spirit of California, and it could also be useful for families planning vacations.—Marian Drabkin, formerly at Richmond Public Library, CA

Format: Hardcover
Beautiful Illustrations, nice descriptions of different areas in California. This would go perfectly with the 4th grade curriculum about state history, but I used it in third grade to talk about our local history and area.

This is a fantastic book. The illustrations are perfect for the text and for representing the state of California well. The book is written in poetry and the author does a very good job. In the back, the author gives additional information on the history of each place highlighted in the book.

This is a beautifully illustrated book and we are ordering one for every teacher in our school. The California Teachers' Association is using this book as a springboard for "Read Across America" celebration in March.
