    This book is a great introduction to the U.S. states. Each page shows a cartoon picture of a state and lists various information about it. The information provided includes the capital, the year it became a state, the state flower and bird and anything that makes the state unique. My 7 year old son loves reading about the states and then telling everyone he meets about them. This has certainly sparked his interest in geography and U.S. history.

    Wonderful book for my 6 year old. Perfectly written, illustrated and informative without being too overwhelming for a child. I would say this book would be one that would take my 6 year old into middle school, as the information will grow with him as he grows. He can take the more simple information for what he needs, and then comprehend the entirety of the book as he gets older. I recommend these for all children!

    Basher books are just fantastic! My 8 year old son loves these books. The illustrations are fantastic, and my son retains what he leads from these books. Best thing you can buy for your child if he's a super nerd like mine!

    The book is 7 inches by 7 inches, a little smaller than I thought but I never looked at the size either. It's a great book, and I love how it shows where each state is on the map in the right hand corner of every state. It also has a lot of facts about each state as well. Each State is a two page spread and on the left side it shows the Capital, some facts about the state, a few paragraph's also about the state, and at the bottom it shows the population, when the state joined and what number state it was, the abbreviation, state flower, state bird, and it's nickname. On the right hand side is just a full picture of the state's shape and like I said, there is a pic of where in the USA the state belongs in the top right hand corner. Great fun facts to learn about each state! My 10 yr old son and I really enjoy learning the fun facts each state. I would recommend this book to people of all ages but especially elementary aged children. SUPER fast deliver too! Very pleased!

    We love Basher Books, and I'm sure this one is just as good as our many others, but I have ordered it twice already and each time I have not received the poster that the picture clearly indicates should be included (see bottom right corner of cover in the picture). My little guy collects the posters and puts them up on his wall. I'm not going to bother ordering a third time because I doubt it will include a poster. I used to buy these at Barnes and Nobel but they do not seem to carry them anymore so just beware, you will probably not get the poster.

    I borrowed this from the library, but my son and I enjoyed reading about each state so much I bought it for our very own library. It's a quirky book that I didn't think much of after skimming the pages, but my kiddo loves it! We taped up a U.S. map to follow along with the states we're reading about.

    The kids are yet ready for this book, but I love it and can't wait to share it with them. This line of books is super cool and fun for the family.
