Purpose:
Don’t Know Much About the 50 States is a perfect book to use in social studies lesson on the 50 states of America. Containing fun facts and trivia that goes beyond the basic information such as state capitals. This book will engage students in an important lesson. While students will take a “tour” throughout America, they will learn everything about how the state was created to specific state animals and state insects. The cartoon like graphics will attract kids to this book. It would be fun to assign each student a state and have them pick out a piece of important information and a fun fact that they found in this book. This book would be appropriate as a read aloud for students aged 6-8 and would be appropriate as an independent reading for students aged 7-10. Kids will enjoy exploring through this informative book, but if used as an independent reading you may want to provide some guidance. This book is very appealing and contains various non-fiction conventions. Some of the non-fiction conventions included in Don’t Know Much About the 50 States are font and effects, illustrations, graphics that help further explain the text and engage the reader, text organizers and descriptive text. The fonts and effects included are titles, headings, bold faced print, colored prints, italics, and captions. This book also contains excellent graphics to help the reader have a clear understanding. Some of these graphics are diagrams, charts, tables, and word bubbles. The text organizers of expository text included in this informative story are a table of content, a preface, and an index. As students will always learn about the 50 states of America in school to have an understanding of geographical locations and the history of our independence, this book is perfect to have on hand for this lesson. By presenting the information in a fun and organized way it attracts younger children to a less popular topic.

I wish I'd come across this while I was working with 5th graders on their state reports. This is not an in-depth study of the states - each state has a one page spread (CA, TX and NY get two pages, natch) with two questions and in-depth answers. For example under Virginia is the question: "Why is Virginia called both a mother and a father?" It's called a mother because 8 presidents were born there, and a father because 8 other states were formed from its original land claim.

I didn't realize he had an entire series like this book! I read this as a child and I used it to teach my younger sister about the 50 states. It keeps kids entertained, but it still has really cool facts in it to learn! Love it.

I find some of the facts that the author uses in this book don't describe the fifty states well. It was good when teaching kids about Idaho

Davis, author of the popular, Don't Know Much About History, has created an entire series for kids. They are easy-to-read, factual, and full of interesting tidbits.
