The Train of States
By Peter Sís
that make up one country – each with its own date of recognition
and symbolic beauty – each given their own train car to display
what makes them the magnificent states they are. From Delaware to
Hawaii, this book by Peter Sís covers each state, their capitols,
flowers, birds, trees, and nicknames, with amazing illustrations
accompanying each one. Each train car is a full-page illustration
and is colorful as well as packed with facts.
I read this, I revisited the days in my elementary school when we
were taught the states and capitols. I love the originality of this
book and the illustrations are incredible! I highly recommend this
book for anyone who loves learning interesting facts about the U.S.
or just loves to read.
