Review:

"A big, beautiful educational journey across the U.S."

- Pretty Prudent

"There are Tlingit nation canoes in Alaska, Walden Pond in Massachusetts, Harpers Ferry in West Virginia (but also the first pepperoni roll and first red-brick street; not all icons are serious business)."

"Readers will enjoy browsing this oversized and colorful atlas of the United States....will offer hours of browsing pleasure."

"Open the large formatted book and explore the United States. Each state (and the District of Columbia) is presented handsome, colorful, and highly informative maps to create a memorable journey."

- Reading Rockets

"The engaging, colorful pages, high interest facts, and intriguing material make this a volume that has appeal for a wide audience."

- Shelf Awareness

"For Those Who Pride Themselves on Knowing Their State's Flower/Bird/Motto. A large-format atlas of the U.S., The 50 States is chock-full of interesting facts, trivia and history."

- Family Circle

"Author Gabrielle Balkan's research and writing draws readers in with a fun mash-up of history, geography and pop culture, while Sol Linero's illustrations make every spread a delight."
