Reviewed in Spain 🇪🇸 on August 10, 2021
Un libro perfecto para sumergirte en la cultura americana y aprender un poco de cada estado. Aquí pone que es para niños, pero lo veo adecuado para cualquier edad pues es ameno, fácil de leer y con información útil para los no nativos. Las ilustraciones son muy bonitas y los detalles están muy bien cuidados. La edición acaba con Trump empezando su mandato, pero eso es lo de menos.

O livro é enorme, material muito bom e ilustrações muito lindas! Ele tem uma grande quantidade de informações, referências e pontos turísticos. Se você quer ensinar a história dos EUA para uma criança, talvez esse não seja o livro mais adequado, mas se você quer apenas se divertir vendo curiosidades, animais e locais interessantes, é perfeito! Vou usar com meus alunos!
