Or that the "mosquito fish" is so rare that its entire population lives in one pond in Big Bend?
This book is packed with so much awesome information and facts that even an adult might learn some new things. I know I did!
The illustrations are just okay.
It's hard to tell in the product photos, but the right side of the book (The eastern part of Texas on the cover) is cut to shape.
The book opens with an introduction to a kid named "Tex", who gives "Meredith" (and the reader) a 'tour' of Texas while relaying across history and facts. The whole book is an exchange between Tex and Meredith, with the orange text being Meredith speaking, and the smaller, longer, black text being Tex. It's done in a way that is easy and fun for kids to grasp and understand.
Overall, this is a wonderful children's book packed with history, famous people, industry, random facts, and more.
