Reading Across the States
Using inspiration from Cindy at Shining Dawn Books, we have started reading across the 50 States. We are also using a blank printable map from Mr. Printables to color in each state as we read.
These are fiction stories for the most part…or historical stories told with a strong narrative focus instead of non-fiction books about each state. It would have been fun to choose the states based on the order they became states, but that was another level of complication I couldn’t quite handle just yet! I will update every few days with the rest of our books.
Alabama–Annie and Helen by Deborah Hopkinson
Alaska–My Wilderness by Claudia McGehee
Arizona–Big Moon Tortilla by Joy Cowley
Arkansas–Priscilla and the Hollyhocks by Anne Broylas
California–Song of the Swallows by Leo Politi
Colorado–High as a Hawk by T.A. Barron
This is a great reading project for the lazy days of summer! (Well, at least I dream of lazy days during the summer.) At any rate, Eli and I might work through some of the books on the list again this summer, too. So many of them are real treasures!
Thanks so much for the inspiration, Cindy! Hope you and Eli have at least a couple lazy afternoons filled with stories. <3
