Eighteen children from many states come together in this book with their pictures and stories. Each one has a different background, family and lifestyle. These boys and girls have a short story about who they are, where they live, their name and what they are doing in the picture. A map of the United States is included to enable young readers to locate cities and states. The three questions at the conclusion of each story will stimulate imagination, encourage discussion, and provide an opportunity for children to exchange ideas. Children Today Around the U.S.A. is a combination of artistic, social, educational, and economic lessons. Visually exciting and verbally stimulating, young readers will want to own and share this original book. Parents and teachers will watch children learn United States geography through Children Today Around the U.S.A. Look for future books by Barbara L. Bishop coming soon.
