I bought this 30-page book as an easy introduction to the history of Ohio for my 6-yr. old daughter. It does a fair job covering state symbols, Ohio presidents,the statehouse,Ohio flag,etc. It also introduces the Wright Brothers,Neil Armstrong and John Glenn. However,about one-third of the book introduces character-types who represent the diversity of Ohio's early settlers or native Indians. Thus we have on one page a drawing of a young pioneer girl with her cat and the caption,"POLLY AND HER FAMILY ARE IMMIGRANTS. THEY CAME FROM A COUNTRY CALLED GERMANY TO OHIO, WHICH IS IN THE UNITED STATES". On another,a fisherman stands beside a crate of fish with the caption,"SANDUSKY SAM HAS HIS CATCH FOR THE DAY. LOOKS LIKE HE'D BETTER WATCH OUT FOR THE STORM THAT'S COMING". What? When I think of the rich heritage of Ohio and its history I wonder where,for example, is the Ohio River, or the story of the canals,Old Man's Cave,the forts and battles from the war of 1812? Don't get me wrong, as an intro. to Ohio it is adequate for those of us who live here; but if you are in another state looking for a good resource on Ohio this is probably not it.
