I didn't realize he had an entire series like this book! I read this as a child and I used it to teach my younger sister about the 50 states. It keeps kids entertained, but it still has really cool facts in it to learn! Love it.

I find some of the facts that the author uses in this book don't describe the fifty states well. It was good when teaching kids about Idaho

Davis, author of the popular, Don't Know Much About History, has created an entire series for kids. They are easy-to-read, factual, and full of interesting tidbits.
