Publisher's Description

The kids in Ms. Brandt's class create a special report on the United States of America, with each child doing research on ten states. There's a double-spread map of the whole U.S. and a page for every state jam-packed with trivia, interesting facts, handwritten captions, and jokes. At the end of the book is a map showing how the United States grew over time, a spread on the presidents and what states they hailed from, as well as a "bibliography" of books the kids used in their research. Written by a team of well-known author/artists, this 64-page Smart About History book is a great guide for kids.

    I was looking for curriculum and saw this book, read the review, and looked at the book preview pages. I was happy to see the previous reviewer said that, although this book isn't written from a Christian perspective, she saw nothing offensive in it; however, when I looked at the preview included on this site, I noticed something to the contrary. On the Alabama page (p.8), it mentions how one cave in Alabama has 10,000-year-old bones in it. These subtle things can tear down our children's faith in the Bible. The Bible teaches the earth is only about 6,000 years old. Needless to say, I don't think I'll be purchasing this book.

    This book was written by public school kids, telling fun facts about each of the states. I think it's well written and great for kids to learn their state capitals and little things about each of the states. It includes past Presidents as well. The fun drawings, the neat facts make it a great book for kids who are just a little curious about each of the states. My kids love it and makes it a great addition to our geography unit study. Though it's not written from a Christian perspective, I found nothing offensive in it. I highly recommend this book!
