Fifo "Fifty States" is a charming picture book in rhyme. It is also a wonderful learning tool for children. Each state is featured with a rhyme and a delightful color picture. There is an amazing amount of information presented in the text and the illustrations complement and add more interesting details to the text.

The book presents the following information about each of the 50 states;
The geographic section of the country that the state is located in (Ex. North, South, East, West, Midwest).
The chronological order that the state entered the Union. (Ex. The 26th state)
The name of the state capitol.
The name of the state flower.
The name of the state tree.
The name of the state bird.
The state motto.

The illustrations add even more details about the states;
A small state map with a star to spotlight the capitol city.
The state flag.
A glimpse of the landscape and tourist attractions.
Some of the main products and occupations (Ex. corn, cherries, mining, farming, livestock, etc.)
Famous state events (Ex. Hot Air Balloons in New Mexico, Rodeos in Oklahoma, etc.)
Famous events in the state's history.

The best thing about the illustrations is that Fifo is featured right in the middle of the page wearing a costume that is appropriate for the state that he is visiting!

Fifo "50 States" is fun, fantastic and full of facts! Kids will love the rhythm and repetition of the text. This book offers many opportunities for parents and teachers to share the joy of traveling with Fifo. I was overwhelmed by the detail in the illustrations. Children will spend hours exploring and investigating the fact-filled pictures.
The beautiful thing about this book is that it is appropriate for children of all ages. Young children will delight in hearing their parent/teacher reading the text and looking at the colorful pictures of Fifo. Older children will find this book educational and intriguing. I think this book will give students just enough information to make them go searching for more. I highly recommend this book to children, parents and teachers. This book rocks!
