Fifo “50 States” by Hayley Rose

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.

    1. Sounds like a great gift idea! Sometimes it’s hard to know what books kids like, but if it’s something that educates as well as entertains, I think it’s worthwhile to take a shot and buy it. Just planting a few seeds of information can bring a great harvest in terms of interest later on!

    2. This sounds like quite an undertaking, getting all that information together for a children’s book is one thing, but making it rhyme and be interesting for kids is quite the achievement. I know I would pick it up if I knew someone with small children.
