I read a really cool book last night called State of Wilderness, written by Elysabeth Eldering and illustrated by Aidana WillowRaven. It's written for kids ages 9-12 years, but as an adult, I got a lot out of it. It's part of a series and there are going to be 50 books in the entire set. The books are really cool because they're based on characters who play a hand held geography game. You follow along as the game gives them clues about the state. The clues start off hard and get easier as they go along. By the end of the game, you have to guess what state the book is about. Even though the book is for kids, I really enjoyed it and learned a lot about the state it was about. I love trivia books, so this was right up my alley. In fact, one of the last books I bought was called Yellowstone Trivia with all sorts of fun facts about the park. Elysabeth's book is like that, but written as a story, making it fun for younger kids. If you and your kids love learning fun facts about the states, this is a great book. You can buy the book directly from the publisher by clicking here. I think the series would be an excellent choice for schools and homeschools. I'm looking forward to the second book.
