Weaknesses of this Book:

*There are several facts that children will find interesting*The book is very colorful and will hold a child's attention*There are very well-done maps

*The book was written in 1999, so the population numbers are outdated.*The only U.S. territory mentioned is Puerto Rico.

This book can be used to introduce the concept of an atlas to children. It can also prompt projects that involve researching states.
