Mr. Geo gives a necessarily brief but enthusiastic and generally child-friendly introduction to Illinois. He begins with a number of pages about Chicago before moving on to the rest of the state. Being Mr. "Geo," he keeps geography in mind, while touching on topics such as history, climate, and places of scenic beauty. Though not especially remarkable, the genial illustrations are serviceable.
