This unique and comprehensive guide to 50 states (plus DC and the six territories) presents each state with a face, voice, and personality to give kids a fun, unusual but really information-packed gazetteer of their country. From Alabama to Wyoming, and everywhere in between, each state boasts about why it is special, dishes fun facts not found elsewhere, and waxes poetic about its motto, state bird, flag, state flower, and more. Find out how Connecticut got to be called the Provision State, why Georgia is nuts about nuts, and why Illinois is called the Land of Lincoln.
