Editorial Reviews

It can be difficult to find an engaging reference book, but World Almanac has succeeded in creating a series that will educate and entertain readers. The books are entirely in Spanish and contain sidebars and graphics that hold interest throughout more academic descriptions of state history and economy. For example, Ingram describes the oldest living tree only a page before delving into the history and development of California from Spanish colony to modern state. The history is well explained and accompanied by primary documents such as a photograph of Johann Augustus Sutter, the founder of a Swiss colony that eventually became the city of Sacramento. This story piques reader interest in history as a study of people and their unusual accomplishments. In a similar vein, the authors include a list, with short biographies, of famous Californians such as William Randolph Hearst, Sally Ride, and Tiger Woods. The section on Californian culture focuses on the enormous influence of Mexican culture and briefly mentions Hollywood. Likewise, the author divides the state between its natural beauty and its enormous cities. Ingram does not forget to discuss the impact of the San Andreas fault line on California. Other features of the World Almanac states series include: a timeline comparing state history to national history, a discussion of state geography and climate, and a description of state government. This book is most useful for Spanish speakers, as the content may be too basic for high-school students learning Spanish. 2004, World Almanac Library, Ages 8 to 12.
