A small book that shares quite a bit of information
This book is literally packed with information about the states from the first page to the back cover. Each state is first shown in relation to its surrounding states, with the states being discussed highlighted. The capital of the state is marked on the map so we can see where it is located within the state, and it is named below in the list of facts as well. We are also told the state's abbreviation with a picture of each state's flag. It's interesting to see the different flag designs and sometimes unique shape. Next, the author shared each state's nickname. Some nicknames come from what the state is known for growing, but other nicknames make you wonder how they came up with that name and in some cases, what they mean.
The facts continue as we learn each state's bird and flower with images of both. I never knew that some states had the same bird and flower, I always thought they would all be different. So, learning that fact was cool as well. Lastly, we are told one interesting fact about each state. My favorite fact was about Wilma Rudolph being the first American woman to win three track and field gold medals at one Olympic Games. You'd think that the last page would be the end of the facts, but the back cover couldn't be left out and shares one last fact about each state, their date of statehood, in order from the first to the last.
I really appreciate this little book and all the information provided right there at your fingertips.
