My First Book of the 50 States of America by Armadillo Press

This title comes with maps, dates and fun facts! In this title, all 50 states are listed in alphabetical order, complete with details about the capital city, nickname, bird and flower associated with each one, as well as the date on which it became one of the United States. Map illustrations show examples of native wildlife, regional foods, local industries and landmarks - including Mount Rushmore, Fort Knox and the Statue of Liberty. You can find out about the hot springs of Arkansas, the tiny state of Delaware, and the fossils of Connecticut's Dinosaur State Park. You can discover where Dr Seuss was born, why Montana is known as the Treasure State, how the Rhode Island Red chicken got its name, and why Virginia is called the mother of presidents . It is designed for children and grown-ups to enjoy together, with a wipe-clean padded cover and sturdy board pages. This fascinating first board book looks at each state in turn, including maps and interesting facts. Did you know that during the summer in Alaska, the sun shines for 20 hours a day? Or that California has the world's tallest trees, which can grow higher than a 30-floor building!Did you know that Hawaii is the only state with two official languages? Or that lowa is nicknamed the Hawkeye State after an important Native American leader. A little American is never too young to find out about the 50 great states that make up the USA!
