Fifo “50 States” by Hayley Rose
An adorably fun and educational book, Fifo “50 States” should be a main staple to every child’s library. Fifo the bear is a huggable, fun and the perfect tour guide who will introduce your child to all 50 States of the United States. With delightfully rhyming text, each state has it’s very own poem, complete with vital information such as which numerical founding state it is, the capital, the flower, tree, bird and the location in retrospect to the entire United States, that state is. On the opposite page, of the poem, is a colorful and hard-to-resist illustration depicting the poem, as well as showing the state’s flag and other great things that that particular state is known for.
Fifo “50 States” is in alphabetical order, which makes looking up particular states quick and easy. Also with it’s catchy, rhyming text, these facts are easy to learn and memorize. It is a proven fact that by providing a rhyme or rhythm to text, the brain is much more likely to register and remember what is being taught. A tempo type of learning mixed with associative learning makes learning so much more fun and easier. Fifo “50 States” is the perfect tool to teach children about the individual states and the importance they each hold to making the United States a whole.
Kids will adore Fifo and adults will delight in their children’s delight in learning. This is truly a book that will continue to be treasured within our family.
