2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Rocco Dormarunno on October 25, 2005
Format: Paperback
The "Portrait of America" series by Kathleen Thompson 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. In this case, however, Ms. Thompson steps off the mainland and off the continent to visit America's largest and most famous commonwealth. The book, like all others in this series, is broken down into sections like "History", "Culture", "Economy" etc., and each section is thoughtfully written and edited. The section on the mass emigration to the U.S. during the 50s and 60s will be of interest to many students, especially those in urban areas. My only reservation is that the History section should have focused more attention on the ancient civilizations that flourished on this island over the centuries.

This book, as well as the entire "Portrait of America" series, will prove to be a valuable teaching tool to all primary school educators.
