USA Picture Books

Some of my favorite books are ones featuring a state where I have lived or where I am going to visit.  Reading tidbits and "insider knowledge" is so fun and makes for great trivia conversation during a trip or long car ride.

Two of my favorite series are:

Discover America State by State -

G is for Garden State: A New Jersey Alphabet (Discover America State by State)

and The Twelve Days of Christmas in America -

The Twelve Days of Christmas in New Jersey (The Twelve Days of Christmas in America)

       

Growing Book by Book is "collaborating with bloggers to create a resource collection of books and activities/projects ideas for each state of America."  Together they have created a fantastic book list for all of the states. 

 
The Pleasantest Thing represented NJ and featured a book about Cape May.

  1. Hi Penny!
    We have been studying the state quarters this year and have been enjoying picture books to go along with them. A few of my favorites have been:
    -Sugarbush Spring by Marsha Wilson Chall (Vermont or any state where maple syrup is produced)
    -Camping with the President (North Dakota - Theodore Roosevelt National Park)
    -Who Carved the Mountain? - Jean L.S. Patrick (Mt. Rushmore - South Dakota)
    -One Day in the Prairie - Jean Craighead George (Oklahoma)
    -Mississippi Going North - Sanna Anderson Baker (Minnesota/headwaters of the Mississippi River)

    I enjoy your blog. Thanks for sharing it!

      Sounds like a fun study - and those are some fantastic books! It's the perfect time of year to tap for maple syrup too.
      Thanks for stopping by!
