Following the runaway bestsellers This is New York and This is Paris, Universe is pleased to reissue another title from M. Sasek's beloved and nostalgic children's travel series. Like the other Sasek classics, This is Texas is a facsimile edition of his original book that is still timely and current in every way. The stylish, charming illustrations, coupled with Sasek's witty, playful narrative, make the book a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents, many of whom will remember it from their childhood. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, remaining true to his vision more than forty years later and, where applicable, facts have been updated for the twenty-first century, appearing on a "This is ... Today" page at the back of each book. In This is Texas, first published in 1967, M. Sasek rides high in the saddle, lassoing all the color and colossal span of Texas as he tours the state from Dallas, Houston, and Austin to the Alamo. From its cattle, coyotes, and cowboys to its oil wells, rodeo and rattlesnakes, everything in the biggest state is bigger than anywhere else.… (more)

Summary: This is Texas is a picture book packed full of facts about Texas. The book starts with telling the readers about the state flag, flower, tree, bird, and size. As you turn the pages of the book, you take a mini-vacation throughout the entirety of Texas and learn interesting facts about the history, present day attractions, and geography of Texas. Illustrations match the descriptions of the text providing the reader with a visual of the tourist attractions that include so much detail and beauty that it is almost as if the reader has been to the places recorded in the book. Teaching Implications: This is Texas could be used to teach about Texas. It provides the readers with a taste of the history of Texas and what it is like in modern day. This is Texas presents facts in a unique and exciting format where the readers are excited to read and see the different facts and places throughout Texas. ( )
