Product description


"From LA to Charleston, kids get to explore the entire country via this beautifully illustrated book. Author Gabrielle Balkan includes every facet of the cities she covers, including facts with an unexpectedly fun cultural bent (we love the Willie Nelson trivia on the Austin page) and a modern spin (city parks and food trucks get prominent mentions)."―GOOP

"Readers will learn plenty of trivia-worthy details about these cities"―
Publishers Weekly

'a great book for bigger kids'―
Babyccino Kids

"Explorers, wanderlusters and geography buffs will spend hours poring over each page."―
Shelf Awareness for Readers

"Middle graders studying the United States will find much intriguing information presented in a clever and inventive format. Highly Recommended"―
School Library Connection

"This engaging volume contains a surprising amount of information in a brief amount of space. A “Cities We’d Also Love To Visit” section and an extensive index finish off the book. VERDICT Fun, fast trivia. While not intended for in-depth research, this is a highly entertaining delight for browsers."―
School Library Journal

"a trove of data nonetheless for tourists of both the active and armchair sorts."―
Kirkus Reviews

'Simply stunning, packed with facts and clean illustrations' ―
Picture Book Blogger
