By R S Cobblestone VINE VOICE on August 4, 2006
Format: Hardcover
O is for Old Dominion is the Virginia edition of the Discover America State By State series. As in all other books I've read in this series (Ohio, Hawaii, Utah), the editing, illustrations, and writing are consistently well done.

I was wondering how author Edwards would handle the slavery/Confederacy issue. I think it was handled with a sensitivity appropriate for a "children's book."

It must be easier to write a book in this series when your state has such a rich history and geography! With only 26 "letters" to use to feature key points, it is a wonder Pamela Edwards could even narrow it down to 26 featured subjects!

My daughter in law got one of these for Christmas - From Michigan where she grew up, and we really liked the illustrations, so I ordered 3 more for other places we have lived. Very nice
