United States Encyclopedia: America's People, Places, and Events (Encyclopaedia) Reviews
I bought this for my 5 yr old who is in love with Stack the Stacks app and the Scrambled States of America book and game. Specifically, we use it for finding state info in the app mentioned at this point, but it's full of great resources for both my children as they grow. It's big but that helps them lay on the floor with it open as they look through. It's nice to be able to teach them how to answer a question without technology and using good old fashioned research which encourages so many more skills and much more critical thinking than typing into google each time.
This book used to be called Our Fifty States (or something very similar). It was updated and the title changed. I hope the word "encyclopedia" doesn't scare off potential buyers. It is nothing like the "encyclopedias" I remember as a child. Colorful pictures, graphics, and short readings should be very appealing to youth (and adults) alike. I look forward to using it when I teach a class on the states. If you want to know more about our country's states - this is a wonderful resource.
My daughter LOVES these books! She's a bit of a know it all now Hahaha! Both she and I are very proud. These are wonderful reference books for the home.
Absolutely stunning production of the 50 United States. This is a hardcover book that is printed on heavy, high-quality gloss paper, so it's a somewhat physically heavy book, but the graphic design and layout along with the written content make it a standout publication. The book is marked "for kids" somewhere, but the book is so well done I would say that anyone of any age could enjoy it. The quality rivals that of what you normally more often see in Europe, where there is a heavy emphasis on printing high-quality magazines and publications. And, for the price, you can't beat it. They probably could have sold this at twice the price. The content is broad, not deep, but that does not matter, because there is so much content to cover that even people who were born and raised in the US will certainly learn some new things from it.
As described! Thanks!
My students love it!
Great way to have that young mind in the house to learn about the United States.
The book was a gift for my nephew who requested it. He loved it.
