Editorial Reviews

About the Series: The titles in this series are perfect for reports on the fifty states. The creative approach may make it more accessible for students who find straight-up nonfiction very dry. Although the back mentions an interest level of grades 1-4, the illustrations and text should work for many struggling middle school students, too."- Kiss the Book Blog "Colorful and active pages. . . As supplements to state-specific material, these books might pique interest in a state or point children to topics for further reading."- School Library Journal "For a short format, many things are covered in the text, making this a good book for an introduction to research.. . .[and] a possible class read aloud or third-grade produced audio book? .Mr. Geo is a fun and entertaining tour guide." -3rdgradereading.net "A great addition to students' reading lists, although it certainly can be a read aloud book for children with lower reading comprehension."- 2ndgradereading.net "Colorful, and sometimes dramatic illustrations."- 2ndgradereading.net "Students will develop further reading skills by using Mr. Geo's trip as a jumpstart to some further research and discovery of the state."- 4thgradereading.net "The 50 States to Celebrate series will be a great asset to primary classrooms and libraries. There is a broad audience for nonfiction informational text? it appeals to a wide range of young readers."- Marla Conn, Educational Consultant, Read-Ability, Inc., and former reading specialist for New York City Public Schools "The 50 States to Celebrate series is a great way to excite kids about social studies. Mr. Geo is fun, entertaining, and informative."- Susan Stark, Editorial Director, Social Studies, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Education Group "
