Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Time for Kids: 50 States



Ready for a road trip?
Get the scoop on the nifty fifty from North to South and
coast to coast with no need for batteries or a charger!

Through the pages of this book you can travel to all 50 states, from Alabama to Wyoming, to discover the history, geography, and culture that make each one great. With more than 100 kid-friendly maps by illustrator Aaron Meshon, full-color photographs, and fun facts galore, this state-by-state guide is perfect for exploring your own state, uncovering new places, and digging into the history of the United States of America.

A great resource for school reports and general curiosity, kids will learn the story of the people who lived on the land before European settlement; how each state joined the Union; the natural resources and people that make it unique; and the industry and agriculture that drive it today. 50 States supports cross-discipline learning in U.S. history, geography, natural history, and cultural studies.

This is a very condensed book about the United States.  It is a thumb nail sketch of each state.  Early elementary age kids should enjoy it.  I discovered several things I either knew and forgot or never knew in the section on territories and commonwealths.  There is also a regional section which looks at groups of states and their regional similarities.


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
