The Weird and Wonderful 50 States
by Heather Alexander
When I was in the fifth grade, as a reward for going to the dentist, my mom bought me a book that I wanted; it was about the United States. I can still picture this Golden Book’s cover. Only in America would have been so loved by me then. It can be enjoyed by kids now.
Within these pages are fun things to learn about the U.S. So much is included in this title that has great graphics. Learn about state nicknames, fast facts which includes things like funny place names and state slang, numerical facts, information about animals, sports and so much more. For example, who knew that Scottsboro, Alabama is the lost luggage capital of the world or that the favorite dessert of Oklahomans is fried pie? Read on your own state and discover old favorite facts and ones that you may not have known. I was from Rhode Island. I knew about quahogs and cabinets but not about a vampire legend. Open this book anywhere and enjoy what is on display. It is such fun!
