50 States Fun Facts

50 States Fun Facts

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.

    The 50 States series of books for young explorers celebrates the USA and the wider world with key facts and fun activities about the people, history, and natural environments that make each location within them uniquely wonderful. Beautiful illustrations, maps, and infographics bring the places to colorful life.

    Also available from the series: The 50 States, The 50 States: Activity Book, 50 Cities of the U.S.A., 50 Trailblazers of the 50 States, 50 Maps of the World, 50 Adventures in the 50 States, 50 Maps of the World Activity Book, Only in America!, and We Are the 50 States.
