Travel across this large state as and find out what life is like in Michigan.

A True Book: My United States series allows readers to experience what makes each of the fifty state distinctive and exceptional. Readers will get to know each states' history, geography, wildlife and future outlook. This series includes an age appropriate (grades 3-5) introduction to curriculum-relevant subjects and a robust resource section that encourages independent study.

Unlike most other states, Michigan is divided into two main pieces of land. To the north is the long, narrow Upper Peninsula. To the south, across Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, lies the mitten-shaped Lower Peninsula. Readers will learn about the local history and government, sample the local cuisine, spot wildlife, and more.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ: Series Made Simple Fall 2017)

Gr 3–5—General state-related history and trivia. Each book opens with an illustrated map of the state that highlights famous and notable places, four of which are spotlighted in smaller inserts. From then on, the series follows a general format, detailing the land, wildlife, politics, culture, and economy of each state. There are numerous outdated stock drawings of American Indians and European "explorers." In addition, slavery is poorly discussed in Louisiana: "Other Louisianians also came to the state against their will." In each volume, a concluding "Resources" page lists a number of movies that don't make sense for the intended audience (Wayne's World in Illinois and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? in California). VERDICT No improvement on the many existing state series.
