Balkan, Gabrielle The 50 States 111 pgs. Wide Eyed Editions (Aurora press), 2015. $30.00 NON-FICTION
A large book featuring all 50 states, each with its own two page
spread, stuffed to the gills with facts, tourist spots, history, notable
people, and much more. The illustrations are bright, wholesome, and adorable.
State buffs will be thrilled with this giant book! Every year a
new round of students get excited about learning all about 50 states and this
book will be absolutely fought over! The illustrations could be framed and the true
test was Utah. I thought the author did a great job choosing all the features
for the page which included, newspaper rock, butch Cassidy, Find-a-Fossil, and
early women’s right to vote.
