Throwback Thursday: The Scrambled States of America



From The Author:
At the first annual "states party," Virginia and Idaho hatch a plan to swap spots so each can see another part of the country. Before the party is over, all the states decide to switch places. In the beginning, every state is happy in its new location. But soon things start to go wrong. Will the states ever unscramble themselves and return to their proper places?

Packed with madcap humor and whimsical illustrations, this quirky story-starring all fifty states-is chock-full of introductory facts and silly antics that will make learning geography as much fun as taking a vacation.



"Well, it was just your basic, ordinary day in the good old U. S. of A. States all over the country were waking up, having their first cups of coffee, reading the morning paper, and enjoying the beautiful sunrise. All the states, that is, except for Kansas."
My Take-
No matter your age, THIS IS THE COOLEST BOOK. The States talk, they dance, sing, fall in love, and they are all friends (for the most part). Here's the book that helped me learn all the states and their locations. People do find  it strange, however, that I still say Florida has a beard, California is lactose intolerant, and Mississippi and Nevada are in love.  My favorite state is Nebraska, the very kind state. Keller uses the states to creates a romp-hilarious story that the grass ins't always greener on the other side.
