This book was a wonderful resource for a state report that I'm doing with my students. However, it's a bit difficult to read for enjoyment. It's packed with too many facts in a small amount of pages. It is the perfect resource for the state report unit that I am doing with my fourth graders, because each chapter highlights facts about Maryland that make you want to visit. I am asking my students to write travel brochures, so this book comes in handy. This book was recommended by our school librarian.
