Fun, Fast Way to Learn the 50 States! Jul 31, 2008
We absolutely love "The Star-Spangled State Book!" It's a fun, fast way to learn about the 50 states. Each colorful state page has the following information: the capital, population, date of statehood, size of area, rank of size, the 3 most populous cities, important state facts, fun state facts, and four Geoquiz questions. Kids can test what they've learned by taking the Geoquizzes throughout the book. There's also a blank U.S. map you can print out. Overall, it's a fun way for kids to learn U.S. geography.
Fun book Jul 21, 2008
This is a really fun book to have around for your children. It is easy to understand and packed with fun information about each state. My family enjoys this resource.
Awesome State Book Jul 18, 2008
This is a great book for introducing the concept of states to younger ones, PK and K. My DH travels for work and we can look up information about the state where he is working. It's better than just a map because we can learn interesting facts about the state as well as know what it looks like! It will be a central part of our homeschool curriculum for years to come!
This is a child magnet! Jul 18, 2008
The Star-Spangled State Book is an absolutely wonderful resource for anyone wanting to learn more about the U.S.! It is filled with so much great information in a format that is so appealing to kids and adults alike. It gets five stars in my house.
Great for geography and state recognition! Jul 17, 2008
Ever want to press the "easy" button in your homeschool? Look no further. The Star-Spangled State Book is a colorful, child-friendly, easy-to-read book about the 50 states. My 1st, 3rd, and 6th graders all love it. You get great facts and no fru-fru with this book. (We use it with the workbook - much better with both.)
The book contains a page dedicated to each state. You will see a small picture of the state, the capital, the abbreviation, the flag, the 3 largest cities, date entered statehood, rank, population, and area. There is a Fact Box and 2 short stories about each state, usually about a famous person who has contributed to our country in some way.
In addition, you will find a page on the following: American Presidents, The Civil War, The 13 Colonies, a blank American map, a labeled American map, Statehood Order, State Abbreviations, and more.
The GeoQuiz at the bottom of each page reviews states, capitals, borders, and trivia. This is a great refresher for mom, too!
I compared this book to others on the market, and liked this one best. My kids have improved their knowledge of states, state recognition, and capitals with it.
