This is a great little ebook for children and great for learning about Mississippi! Fun illustrations that give a hint before the page turn - great idea...looks really good on iPad. Good for reading to children on your lap.

Adults & children will love using this e-book to learn about Mississippi's sites and state symbols. Toddlers will be drawn to the bright colors as well as guessing answers to the riddles. Mr. Anderson's "picture clues" to the answers will help children formulate their guesses. This was my first download of a children's book for my iPad and I can't wait to get more of Mr. Anderson's titles in this series. MORE TITLES, PLEASE, MR. ANDERSON!!!!!

This is a well written book, with lots of information about Mississippi presented in a "Jeopardy" type question and answer format. When my students previewed the book earlier in the year, they loved it! The illustrations are so very life like and the colors will just blow you away they are so vivid. Every illustration has had a lot of thought and planning to make sure that they are totally accurate. This book is presented in such a way that it is a quick and easy way to learn about our state. All ages will enjoy the book, grandparents sharing with grandchildren especially. It will also open doors for parents and grandparents to pass other stories along to the younger generation. Can't wait for other states! Keep them coming Rick!
