Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3 Where are the most potatoes grown? What industry is big in Oregon? Where was the Declaration of Independence signed? The answers to these questions and others can be found in this colorful and creative title. For each state from Alabama to Wyoming plus Washington, DC, and the U.S. Territories readers will find a half-page illustration consisting of a map, a picture of the state bird, flower, and products, playfully arranged along with a few facts, statistics, and bits of interesting trivia. Each picture incorporates at least one question that is answered in the back of the volume. Leedy has outdone herself with delightful illustrative details, particularly in the presentation of each state's name. California is written in fruits; New York is written in lights. This book is truly a celebration of the diversity and wealth of our nation. Jackie Hechtkopf, University of Maryland, College Park

From Booklist

Here's a happy hodgepodge that will introduce primary-grade kids to the 50 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. territories. Each page contains simple pictures of two states, with bits of state lore and information scattered about. The state capital, a place or event, the year the state entered the Union, and the state bird, flower, river, or lake are among the facts on the map. These facts are noted in various typefaces, but the key to the typefaces is on the title page, making it hard to find; happily, however, the key is not really necessary. Kids will delight in taking a look at the diminutive images that cover the state, and a second look at things they might have missed the first time around, e.g., the letters of California formed by fruits and veggies, or the ballooned questions, such as "What is a Hoosier?" --which are answered on the last page. Brightly colored and amusingly designed, this is a simple yet winning introduction to the U.S. Ilene Cooper

This book has some pretty interesting geography facts. I liked the fact that Amelia Earhart was born in Kansas. A browser's delight of United States geography facts in a captivating picture book format. It has excellent color illustrations, and would recommend this one to the 2nd grade through the 4th grade levels, as well as the teachers.

This book is fantastic! We have a paperback copy but it has been read over and over and has been taped & retaped so we need a hardback book to keep going!My two children ages 2 and just 6 have read this book for the past year or so and both love it! My older one loves to hear about the different states and name them by their shape. My 2 year old loves to find the state birds and other wildlife on the pages! I strongly recommend this book especially in hardback!!

My kids are collecting the 50 States quarters, and this book is a good tie-in -- is gives lots of information about each of the United States, it is well-illustrated, and it is fun and interesting. We like Loreen Leedy all the time.

We checked this book out from our library 3 times...finally I decided just to buy it (in paperback). My 2nd grader loves to read and learn about the states. It is filled with interesting information and great illustrations...and it is in an easy to read format. I will buy more books from this author!
