KIRKUS REVIEW

From the Statue of Liberty to Fort Niagara, from the short-nosed sturgeon to the endangered Massasauga rattlesnake, from cameras to Jell-O, and from Peter Stuyvesant to Roger Peterson, the state of New York is filled with natural wonders, parks and great battles and events. Its people are Native Americans and settlers and immigrants from all over the world. In this tour of the regions and peoples of the state, the authors provide an enticing overview of what defines each area. Softly focused watercolors highlight one aspect while differently shaped inserts add varied information. While no one piece provides in-depth coverage, the format is inviting to those planning a visit, whether from out of state or in. (resources, websites) (Nonfiction. 4-8)
