A True Book: My United States series allows readers to experience what makes each of the fifty state distinctive and exceptional. Readers will get to know each states' history, geography, wildlife and future outlook. This series includes an age appropriate (grades 3-5) introduction to curriculum-relevant subjects and a robust resource section that encourages independent study.Readers will tour this icy state and see how its people live. They will also find out how the area was first settled, what events led to it becoming a state, how it is governed today, and more.
