DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE 50 STATES

Author: Kenneth C. Davis

Which Texas leader cried, "Remember the Alamo"?  Where in Kentucky can you find eyeless fish and blind beetles? What Minnesotan was so big that he used a pine tree to brush his beard?

Every state boasts a special claim to fame -- whether for its rich history, natural splendor, advancement of the arts, or other unique contribution to American life. Check out what's said about the place you call home -- and learn surprising facts about the rest of the country.

In this delightfully designed and illustrated book, Davis's lively question-and-answer format gives you lots of fascinating information. You're guaranteed to impress parents, shock friends, and even stump teachers!

From Publishers Weekly
Kenneth C. Davis, author of the bestselling Don't Know Much About series for adults, has adapted the concept in a group of books for younger readers. Using his signature approach of presenting facts in a q&a format, Don't Know Much About the 50 States begins with a picture of the American flag and an explanation of the 13 stripes. Each of the 50 states get its own page, with a drawing of the state and five facts, and a few warrant a spread (California, New York, Texas). Serious questions ("How many United States presidents were born in Ohio?" [Seven]) share space with jauntier queries ("I'm big, I'm green, I'm America's Welcome Queen. Who am I?" [New York's Statue of Liberty]). Endpapers unite all of the states and list the original 13 colonies.
