I love books that educate while they entertain. This is certainly true of Fifo “50 States” by Hayley Rose.
In this fun, rhyming adventure, Fifo the Bear invites children to join him on his imaginary tour of the 50 states of America. From Alabama to Arkansas, from Georgia to Indiana, from Missouri to New Mexico, and beyond, readers learn capitals, state flowers, native birds, and more.
The states are listed in alphabetical order, which I love, and the repetitive rhymes encourage memorization. Each state’s page also includes the state’s motto. The charming illustrations by artist Jessie B. Orlet include each state flower, bird, and flag, but also other items the state is famous for, which creates an avenue for additional discussion.
I wish I had this book when my daughter was studying U.S. capitals earlier this year.
I highly recommend Fifo “50 States” by Hayley Rose. Learning should always be this much fun.
