50 Nifty United States, Picture Book Style

My boy loves maps, particularly of the US. We have a big one hanging up in the homeschool room and he has two different USA puzzles. He is always looking at them and talking about them—That’s where Uncle Christopher lives! I been there! That’s where I was born!—so for fun, I printed out a blank black-and-white USA map a few months ago.

I let him color in a state each time we read a children’s book that talked about that state, even if only as a brief mention. (Often only in the Author’s Note section) I had to get online and really hunt to find books once we hit the end of our list, but now we have a fun little list of children’s books that take place in each state. Enjoy!
