What state's trees helped the colonists during the Revolutionary War? What is the only state name that is one syllable? What building (in the USA) contains rocks from the Great Pyramid of Khufu in Giza, Abraham Lincoln's tomb, the Alamo, and the Colosseum in Rome? Which state produces the majority of the toothpicks used in the USA? Can you answer these questions? You can if you read the book we are sharing tonight. It is National Geographic Kids Weird but True! USA

Now we love the books in the Weird but True! series from National Geographic Kids. I have used them to make "Did You Know..." lunch box notes and Hazel is fascinated with them. This one is no different. It is full of facts about the states as well as the country.

The facts are colorful and have photographs to go with many of them. There are things about history, culture, politics, government and just fun. Do you know where in the United States people drive on the left side of the road? Do you know that San Francisco's fog has a name? 

Do you know where the name "skunk" comes from? This book has so many interesting facts and teaches a bit of history, geography as well as science and more. Talk about fun learning. There is so much in this book. There is an index where you can look up topics including states. 

So pick up a copy for yourself and fascinate your friends and family this Fourth of July!! Or entertain your kids with lunchbox facts. Enjoy!
