A strikingly vibrant beauty of a book on the 50 States of America, this hefty tome would be a fabulous resource for any home or classroom.

With fact-filled spreads in snappy, bite-sized pieces of interesting information about each State, there are a wealth of fun facts to be read and digested.

Sol Linero‘s super vivid illustrative style, coupled with Gabrielle Balkan‘s compelling narrative and enlightening factual snippets makes for a truly educative tool.

Balkan‘s incisive text make this geographical tour of America’s rich and varied landscape a highly engaging one and one that any reader will enjoy returning to again.

The deceptively clever way in which this Atlas of America has been simplified and presented in such an alluring format, is credit to the genius pairing of Balkan and Linero.
