Review:
Can you name the thirteen original colonies? Do you know why Alabama is known as the Yellowhammer state, or what a "nodding donkey" is? Can you name all of the presidents who originally came from Ohio? After reading Don't Know Much About the 50 States you could.

Answers to the questions above, along with other interesting factoids, can be found in this entertaining book. Each of the 50 states, plus Washington, D.C. has a page or two dedicated to its local customs, folklore, and other factual tidbits. In addition, each state's nickname, date of statehood, capital, state flower and state bird is listed. Renee Andriani's colorful, cartoon-like illustrations complement the text's light-hearted tone.
