The Scrambled States of America: Book GIVEAWAY

Book of the Week GIVEAWAY: The Scrambled States of America by Laurie Keller

Why we love this book: My children are craaaaaaaaaazy about this book! We checked it out from our local library and the kiddos were immediately hooked. Yes, hooked on a book that teaches them about the 50 States! And now we have our own copy. This book is silly and quirky and written for children! It is packed with information and can be read again and again. Everyone needs this book in their home and classroom library. It is very rare to find a book that actually teaches while being fun for the children. (Shhhh! Don’t tell them they are learning!)

The Scrambled States of America Game

An excellent follow-up to the book is The Scrambled States of America Game. Do not underestimate this little memory game. I never thought such a simple game could be so much fun and teach children so many basic facts about the 50 states.

  • You do not need to read the book first; however, the book is an excellent introduction to the states and sets the stage for the game.
  • Children need to have at least beginning reading skills.
  • This game makes a wonderful gift.
