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.
