In this series, geography teacher Mr. Geo visits a different state in each book.  Mr. Geo is seen as a happy modern-day explorer of major cities, national parks, and attractions that have become famous.  Mr. Geo's shirt has the two-letter state abbreviation on it.   A U.S. and a state map are included in each title, as well as a chronology of important dates, activities to reinforce learning from the book, and a glossary with the page numbers on which each listed word is found. "Did you know?" facts are seen in a text box at the bottom of some pages. The young people included in Mr. Geo's activities could be upper-elementary age or a bit older; they do not look so young that struggling readers of middle school or high school age might be offended reading the books. The basic information young students need for a "state" report is available on the "Fast Facts" page while the information in the rest of the book is more supplemental. That being said, this series is a nice alternative to the state books that are straight facts and photos.  Young people will enjoy the whimsical illustrations and the brevity of the text.  This title includes information on airboating in the Everglades, visiting St. Augustine, and scuba diving in the Keys.
