MEDIA REVIEWS
"These volumes will be useful as resources for storytellers and for U.S. history classes." - Booklist Online
"The stories are short and easy to understand, making for a productive filler when learning about the states." - Library Media Connection
"Each tale takes only a page or two, and mood ranges from tall-tale funny to ghost-story creepy to factually informative, with a useful variety in each section." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
