The United States is a remarkable country, and we as Americans are lucky to live here. Have you ever wondered what this country is like? Maybe you know a bit about where you live, your hometown, maybe your home state, but there are fifty states in the United States. How much do you know about them?

Were you aware that the state of Alaska would fill up one-fifth of the total area of the rest of the United States all by itself? Were you aware that Hawaii has a state fish? Or that Massachusetts has a lake within its borders that has the longest name of any body of water in the whole United States? It's true!

If you're curious about your country and would like to learn more about what it is like, “from sea to shining sea,” then The Everything Kids' States Book is intended for you. If you want to know what there is to see and do if you visit other states in the Union, if you're curious about each state's history, if you'd like to know what kinds of things are made and sold in these states, if you'd like to know wacky and little-known facts about each state, then this is the book you've been looking for!

Beginning with New England and ending with the Pacific Northwest, this book sweeps across the nation we call home, telling us a bit about where we live, what we do for fun, and what our future looks like. Mixed in are tidbits such as Fast Facts, Words to Know, and Try This, all intended to keep you focused on the fun side of learning about America.

May God bless her!
