When I was about ten years old, my mom bought be an atlas of the U.S. that was published by Golden Books. I had been wanting the book for some time. I thought about how much I enjoyed that book when I received this one in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley and the publisher.
This book is an excellent and interesting introduction to the United States. Following a welcome page, there is a section on the biomes of North America and then the states…each one has beautifully, lively illustrated pages. Readers will learn “Fast Facts.” These include the size and population of the state, along with when it joined the Union, the State nickname and the State bird. Each map has pictures imposed on it that show sites, crops, animals and more. There are also additional illustrations that highlight places to visit. For example, there is the Grand Ole Opry in Tennessee, the Crystal Bridges Museum in Arkansas, the mansions in Newport, Rhode Island and so much more.
Help a child you know to learn geography. This book can be read in the order given or randomly. It is a good resource and will be enjoyed by both adults and kids.
From the publisher:
This Midwestern state is mostly farmland. People here live far apart, and cities are small. Every four years, Iowa plays a large role in the presidential election when it holds the first caucuses, or meetings, to discuss the candidates
Known for hot weather and beautiful deserts, Arizona is a favorite place to vacation. There are unusual animals and ancient monuments. And no visit it complete without a trip to the Grand Canyon
