    Maps of the USA introduces young students to each state in the U.S., along with details about each state and facts such as the state bird, flower, population, and area. The reproducible worksheets are pretty open-ended and can be used alongside any history program or state study to take a closer look at each state. The first hundred pages contain two-page spreads on each state, with state facts and black-and-white pictures to color on the left-hand side, and the state itself featured on the right-hand side. The right-hand page contains an outline map of the state itself, with geopolitical information, such as important cities, rivers, geographical features, and neat places to visit in that state. A smaller map of the U.S. is also provided with the featured state shaded in, so the student can see the location of the state in relation to the rest of the nation. These worksheets can be used to make a state notebook, or to use with any number of state activities, and can be colored, labeled, etc. Following the individual state pages are worksheets on the U.S. as a whole, including regions of the U.S. along with a segment of the map and questions for each, maps of the U.S. as a whole, both with and without state names filled in, a states and capitals chart, supplemental word puzzles, and maps featuring waterways, climate zones, and physical features of our nations along with questions for students to answer based on the map. "A U.S. State in Review" page is also included at the end, which can be reproduced and used alongside the individual state worksheets to fill in more facts about the state, draw its outline, and include in a state notebook, if they're making one. Answers included. - Jess

    Here's a really tasty supplement to any study of the United States! While state studies often include state birds, flowers, capitals and other facts, most don't devote much time to "state foods." This book includes easy-to-follow instructions for preparing a complete meal - main course, side dish, and dessert - typical to one eaten by people of each of the 50 states. When too tempting to pass up, some states also include additional recipes for breakfast foods or snacks. Fun state food facts pepper the pages to keep you busy while the meal is cooking. As they say, "When in Iowa, eat as the Iowans do." - Steph

Fifty pages of questions and activities have students practice using direction, position, distance, and comparison, analyze information, and draw conclusions. Besides learning basic map skills, your children will learn a great deal about the individual states including locations, abbreviations, nicknames, industry, and more. Even math and reading skills are put to good use as children compute mileage and distance, navigate time zones, and read charts. At the end of the book is a blank map of the U.S. for children to write the names of the states in (after finishing this book, it should be easy), a list of state nicknames and abbreviations, and an answer key.

Auden, Charles Williams, and J.R.R. Tolkien were all influenced by George MacDonald, who, C.S. Lewis says, writes allegorical and mythopoeic fantasy "…better than any man." The stories are fun to read, and include several illustrations. 172 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    Although some readers may not appreciate all the humor used, this illustrated book offers some very interesting lesser-known stories like ââ‚Å"Stormalong The Sea Captainâ₝, as well as different ââ‚Å"takesâ₝ on some classics, like ââ‚Å"Jack and the Beanstalk.â₝ In this version, Jack is a thieving boy that is trying to steal from the giant at the top of the beanstalk, and he chops the beanstalk down so the giant canââ‚™t get him. The main story is a storyteller that was in a shipwreck and is being held captive by some normal-sized people. You will see all sorts of giants in these pages, from the mighty Atlas to Benny ââ‚Å"The Beanstalkâ₝ Giant. And what would a book about giants be without being a giant book? So of course, you should know that the book is a fairly large 12â₝ x 9.â₝ ~ Shroom

    Once well-visited, well-liked, and well-off, Doctor Dolittle begins to lose patients as a result of his many pets. He does not really care, for he isn't worried about money and he likes animals better anyway. His parrot, Polynesia, who can speak English, teaches Dr. Dolittle to speak her language, and eventually he can communicate with all animals. He soon becomes an animal doctor instead, and he becomes quite rich again as word spreads of amazing success. Soon even wild animals are showing up at his door for help, and Dr. Dolittle never turns anyone away. When he acquires a crocodile, his business again comes to a screeching halt and his money dwindles to the point where the animals know he can not keep feeding them. Quite out of the blue, a sparrow comes with a message. There is a terrible sickness spreading among the monkeys in Africa. Will the doctor come to help? Though he has no money, Dr. Dolittle has such compassion for animals that this can't stop him from getting to Africa. He takes his favorite animals with him (as well as the crocodile, who wants to return to his homeland) and sets off on an extraordinary adventure. An amusing, entertaining story children will love to read themselves or have read to them. 156 pages.
