Reviews - What do customers think about 50 States (Fandex Family Field Guides)?

Fun, easy learning  Jul 5, 2006
We bought this as a gift for our soon-to-be first grader. We have been traveling a lot this summer and the fandex is a fun, easy way for our daughter to look at the states we have been through. Concise and easily manipulable for little people.
Great deal  Sep 4, 2005
The 50 States Fandex cards were in excellent condition and arrived quickly. I have a 4 year old who is learning so much from them.
Fun and Educationally Stimulating  May 12, 2005
As a curriculum developer, I am constantly on the lookout for educational products that will enhance textbook study. I must say that the Fandex Family Field Guide 50 States far exceeded my expectations! Having enjoyed history and geography in school, I was surprised by how much I learned while reviewing this guide. It is full of interesting facts and tidbits about each state while also presenting important information that students should know.

Each card has a topographical map of the state and lists when it was admitted into the union, nickname, capital, motto, bird, flower, and has a small picture of the flag. The topographical maps are detailed enough to be able to get a grasp on how far it is from San Francisco to Los Angeles, CA, for example, and important national parks and monuments are also included. A small outline map on the back of each card shows the state in relation to the continental U.S. Information on each state's industry is included in the text.

Overall, I was impressed by the amount of information presented in such an interesting format. Students who enjoy history and geography will find 50 States particularly interesting, but the unique format will engage even more reluctant students.
Fabulous for Fifth Graders  Mar 22, 2002
This was the perfect start-of-school present for my 5th grader. her teacher loved it too and everyone wanted to borrow it. The state reports were a snap.
A cute format for learning about the States...  Feb 24, 2001
My kids find the Fandex format easy to use, and the information on them accessible. We have several, and they're fun for all of us to use together.

I like the fact that each state has a map, as well as pertinent info: Admitted to the Union; if and when Seceded from the Union; if and when Readmitted to the Union; Nickname; Motto; Capital; Bird; and Flower. There are also several paragraphs of pertinent information about each state, with some history and a description of the character and things, which make it unique.

The only quibble I have about these decks is that sometimes when they're completely fanned out, the edges of the illustrations get caught up in each other, making it hard to close them properly. But other than that, they're cute, informative, and a nice format for kids.
