Part of the best-selling 50 States series of books and activities, The 50 States: Fun Facts celebrates the people, animals, vehicles, food, places, and events unique to America’s 50 states—with a 24-piece puzzle map of the United States included to top off the adventure.

Did you know that Connecticut’s state insect, the praying mantis, can turn its head nearly all the way around? Or that every year the Iowa State Fair creates a 600-pound butter cow? Each colorfully illustrated spread covers a different category and features 50 boxes, each representing a state and describing in a picture and words one special thing it is known for. The categories:

  • Animals
  • Things that go
  • People
  • Places
  • Festivals and cultural events

“See if you can spot…” boxes challenge you to take a closer look and sturdy cardboard pages make this book perfect for little hands to flip through again and again.

Also available from the 50 States series: The 50 States, 50 Cities of the U.S.A., The 50 States: Activity Book, 50 Trailblazers of the 50 States, and I Spy the 50 States.
