Book Review

Reviewed by Anne B. for

Fifo “50 States” by Hayley Rose is an excellent tool for teaching children about the 50 states. Information pertaining to each state is included in a poem, as well as the state bird, flower and tree. This small book also teaches the state capital and the state number. The rhythm will help the child to learn the information. The illustration contains clues to something for which the state is well known. At the bottom of the page with the poem is the state motto.

I’ll use Kentucky as an example of the information offered for each state. Kentucky was the fifteenth state, and Frankfort is the capital. The state flower is goldenrod, and the state tree is the yellow poplar tree. The state bird is the red bird, also known as the Cardinal. The state motto is United We Stand and Divided We Fall. The illustration shows a horse because Kentucky is famous for fast horses. The illustration also shows the state bird. Tobacco and coal are the main crops. Daniel Boone National Forest is located in the eastern part of the state. The state is well known for Fort Knox where all the national gold reserves are hidden.

Hayley Rose offers teachers and parents a tool to utilize in making learning fun. I was excited when I received this book to review. Learning should be fun, and Rose has created an excellent way that children can relate to. We need more books of this caliber for our children. The amount of information stored in this small book is amazing. I shared Fifo with my grandson. Maddix loved the bear and the poetry held his attention. He asked me to read it again; that’s how I judge a book to be worthy of my shelves.
