ONLY BEAUTIFUL, NURTURING PICTURE BOOKS FOR ALL AGES

A compendium of America's History:
The 50 States


"We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal, that they
are endowed by their Creator with certain
unalienable Rights, that among these are
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness"

[Preamble to the Declaration of Independence]

Celebrating the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation also means celebrating  one of the most important documents in the world's history, remembering its meaning.
Why is the American Constitution so important? Because it's the only thing that binds the 50 States and American citizens all together. A huge territory inhabited by multiple ethnic and religious groups without a very extensive history as people.
The Constitution recognises and protects basic civil rights to American citizens and guarantees the principles of individual liberty, limited government and federalism.

'The 50 States' is a fantastic non-fiction book ideal to interest middle grade children (and even slightly younger) in America's history showing its inner complexity and heterogeneity.
The focus is on the story of each State: each double page is packed with illustrated maps and information about the key dates to remember, basic geo-demographic facts, landmarks and name of important people who made the history of that state, finally contributing to make America what it is today.

A tribute to the beauty, inventiveness and diversity of the United States.

The new flashcards feature an outline of the key facts for each state, flags and some questions and answers, and can be used as an interactive tool to explore and revise the facts presented in the book.
