Hi there readers!
Welcome back to another week here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
It's not just any old week though, although really any week where we are talking about books is a fairly decent one in my book. For those that don't already know (check yesterday's post..hehe), this week is National Library Week! The "official" week out of the year that we celebrate those wonderful havens for readers round the world...libraries. We'll be celebrating here every day with bookish posts and even a fond remembrance of childhood visits in the coming days, but first...we have a blog tour to host.
Today's guest is here courtesy of Pump Up Your Book and features a title that is sure to please. Readers of all ages can revel in this little informative wonder while still enjoying some fabulous detailed artwork. Ready to read all about it? Here we go! Today's book of choice and blog tour guest is....

This is not your typical children's storybook despite what the cover may say to you. Though it does read as easily as one and with much whimsy, in truth, it's a non-fiction book for kids of all ages (yes, YOU too) that teaches readers all about the US of A from sea to shining sea in small, lyrical, and easily digested pages. Allow me to explain...
With every turn of the page we are taken on an adventure with Fifo the bear as our guide. (Nice to meet you Fifo! Lead us where you may...) We travel from state to state to state on a journey to discover all 50 wonders that make up this great country...without ever having left our living rooms. Each two page spread shares an informative piece of poetry where readers will learn about the state being explored. Facts shared include not merely the state name and capital as we were taught in school, but also the state's bird, tree, and location. Further more, if we look outside the box (so to speak), we learn the state's motto...something not many people know about their own home state let alone others.
Be sure to check out the rest of the tour as it continues along its virtual journey. A few of the many upcoming stops include these fine gems....
