Fifo '50' States - Hayley Rose

As part of our homeschooling this year I thought it would be fun to take a 'tour' of each state. We have utilized various resources to find facts, recipes and the history of each state. I have read numerous picture books to the kids of the various states. Fifo '50' States incorporates fun information into each of the states in kid friendly, rhythmic prose. Hayley Rose mentions the capital, state bird, flower and and tree for each state that Fifo visits.

The illustrations incorporate all of these facts and show Fifo on a grand adventure in each state. Kentucky for an example has Fifo riding a horse in the Kentucky Derby!

Fantastic reference book for homeschoolers and teachers. Add it to your library and suggest to your local public library to add Fifo '50' States to its offerings.

Many thanks to Hayley Rose for providing me with a review copy of this book. It has been well loved and treasured all ready.

Visit Fifo at his website and find some fun activities to go along with the book. While you are there check out Fifo's first book  "When I grow up".
