Book Review: Utah: Big Buddy Books: Explore the United States.

This book is written to the second or third grade level.  I grabbed it because I wanted to know what people were saying about Utah.  It was written by Sarah Tieck.  Some of the pictures are very interesting.  Delicate Arch  is on the front, a good picture of the Salt Lake temple and tabernacle are included.  It also has views of Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks.  It also mentions Golden Spike where the railroad lines came together.  The famous people from Utah it mentions are Brigham Young and Donny and Marie Osmond.  There is a picture of the handcart pioneers I had never seen before.  I explains that Utah did not become a state until 1896 because “U.S. Congress disagreed with some of the Mormon beliefs.”  This book was brief, and it spent a few pages worrying about the theme of the nation rather than Utah.
