Maine (States) Hardcover – July 1, 2002
From School Library Journal
Grade 4-7-Combining text and technology, these titles provide students with plenty of information for classroom research or personal inquiry. Five pages of annotated Internet addresses precede the chapters. The quality sites can be accessed through the MyReportLinks site; a password is provided and the publisher states that it "will keep these Report Links up to date on- [the Web site] for three years from the book's first publication date." Once there, users find a simple and uncluttered page that provides subject links and a keyword search option. Each specific state link leads to a table. A page of easy-to-use quick facts covers general information about the state such as famous people and interesting locations. Other chapters cover land and climate, economy, government, and history with each spread replicating the format of a computer screen in Internet Explorer. Plentiful color photos, maps, and pictures of actual Web pages varying in contrast and sharpness complement the information. The simple sentence and paragraph structure, as well as the layout of the text and the Web-site design, allow for quick access to information.
