Fifo's been bitten by the travel bug! Digging up diamonds in Arkansas, looking for fossils in Kansas, enjoying a delicious bowl of gumbo in Louisiana, and even seeing a Broadway show in New York. America is an exciting place!

In Fifo's second book, told in rhyme, Fifo dreams about visiting all 50 states. A colorful reference-like book, Fifo discovers the wonders each state has to offer. He learns along the way each state s capital, shape, flag, motto, and much, much more. The possibilities are endless! So, come along with Fifo and you ll soon discover the beauty of America one state to another.

We received this book to give an honest review.
K and I really enjoyed this book. K doesn't really know all the states and he didn't even know they had a number. So when we were reading it together it was a great eye opening learning event for him. With each state we get to learn what the state rose is, tree and bird. The book also rhymes a bit. K and I had fun looking at the pictures and searching for the bird, flower and tree. K noticed that some birds were in other states as well which opened up discussions about state birds. 
I think this is a great book to learning all the states I will be reading it to A when she is a bit older.
