Young readers are invited to set out on an inspiring journey of discovery ... introducing "From Sea to Shining Sea" -- a series of state books from Children's Press specifically prepared for students in grades 3 to 5 (reading level: grade 4).

This glorious state-by-state panorama of America's past and present helps young readers understand how the development of each state fits into the grand mosaic of America's history. Students are sure to enjoy every lively page, every colorful picture of this reading adventure. Graphic delights greet the eye with every turn of a page -- historic engravings and woodcuts, easy-to-read maps, and superb full-color photographs, including beautiful scenic spreads.

While the books can be read straight through as fascinating stories, they also contain a wealth of useful reference material, organized for easy access. "From Sea to Shining Sea" consists of 52 volumes, covering all 50 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Each book is organized in this logical, practical way: -- Introduction to the state and its principal "claims to fame".-- Geography of the state, including its location, topography, and physical features. History of the state from prehistoric times, Native American inhabitants, and first settlers right up to the present day.-- The people and their work -- agriculture, industry, and commerce.-- A trip through the state -- an exciting itinerary covering all the main cities, landmarks
