Wow! I'm really excited about this book. My kids have just about completed a study of the 50 states, but I like this much better. It will be a great review for now, but will definantly be on hand when I need to cover this in the future for my youngest two. I love the colorful pages and all the information packed on the page. The quizzes and the game along the bottom of the page are geart too. I think my oldest will probably go through this on his own.

This book looks like it will provide all you need for a wide range of children to learn the 50 states. We are working on the Founding Fathers, the Constitution, and America. Learning the America songs, states, capitals and so forth. I am really excited about such a workbook so the kids have a sheet to do every day.

Terri,
You have done it again. I have been looking for something to help my friends younger child learn her geography. This is perfect. If I had elementary aged children I would be using this. I have highschoolers and plan to use the Geography in a Year book next year. However, I plan to let all of my group know about this book and workbook. Those with children ages 7-11 will love this.
Great Job.

We are currently using My father's World Curriculum for my 5 year old and if we continue with this curriculum then we will be doing a States studie in a couple years. this book would be great for that. Would be a great resource on its own also. I have family all over the US and my kids are always thinking its a different country. this would help in teaching them otherwise. LOL. thanks for this opportunity. I hope I win. LOL

The Star Spangled State Book looks very interactive and eye-catching. I like the extra facts located on the bottom of the page, things that the kids will remember to associate with that particular state. It is set up very appealing visually, which also adds to the memorable content.

I really liked both of the samples. This looks like a fun addition to our current state study. I only wish both books were available as a pdf download. I much prefer to print as we go along in a study. I prefer not to have so many books to store, but also I am not wild about making copies from books. It is much more time consuming than printing from a pdf document. ;)

Thank you!

This looks like an incredibly easy curriculum to use! However, I would prefer getting both the book and the workbook together--the book is very nice, but without the accompanying workbook, it's just a trivia book with a little bit of quizzing inside. It won't mean as much to the student unless they can easily use rote memory or visual memory.

We are preparing for a trip from Florida to Canada the end of May and another from Florida to Missouri the middle of June. Our favorite way to study geography is on the road with a book in hand. The Star Spangled State Book is perfect for us. We will be better informed of the history of each state we visit along the way. With several children of different ages and our love of notebooking, I was pleased to see that the workbook comes with a printable CD.

This is also my first blog post. :) I enjoyed looking at the sample from the booklet. It looks like just what my son and I need to supplement U.S. History, and our state history, which we'll probably study this summer. Thank you for a chance to have it free! Kloogy116@aol.com

What a great book and workbook. I think both of my boys would enjoy it. We have only looked at a few states in our unit studies. This looks like a fun and well planned out package. As always thank you for helping a homeschool mom find the best curriculum for her sweet kiddos! Blessings to you.

Yes!! This looks great. Not too much info, but just enough to get it in the brain. I need to redo the states. Whatever I did already before didn't stick. I have lots of other books, but not really a workbook to go along with it. I think this can be done!!

This looks great!!! A couple of years ago we started a study of the 50 states using a different resource, but it became dry and boring to them, so we never finished. This looks like something we would stick with! Both of my kids would benefit from this (and I would too - LOL).

This book looks like so much fun! We are going into our first year of homeschooling and my kids constantly have questions about differents states. Seems like a great resource for answering all those questions!!!

This looks like it would be something my kids would really like! I can't wait to learn all this for myself too. We never learned this when I went to school. Homeschooling is so much fun!

Laura said...

Fantastic!!! We are doing the 50 states next year and this would be great. Thanks for the awesome product.

Jackie Z said...

This looks and is so wonderful, I started yesterday right after I printed it off. My boys are actually excited about a part of their school day now!! We have been and plan to continue traveling, so this timing couldn't be better for us. My dad is always saying that I am learning so much, and I am, thanks to awesome material such as this! Please enter me in the drawing as well!

Stephanie said...

My boys are constantly asking us questions about states and cities, and I really need to do an actual curriculum with them instead of *just* teaching it when they ask...I'd love the chance to win the book...and my boys would, too!

Missy said...

It looks like a good collection of information on each state. It's nice to have all of that info in one place. We are briefly covering each state as we study through US history; basically learning some basic facts about the state as we come to the time period that it joined the Union. This would be a good resource to have on hand for doing that.
Blessings!

Thanks for sharing this book. My oldest LOVES anything regarding the states, or red, white & Blue! We would love to win this book. My husband was just laid off due to a lack of work so a purchase is out of the question at this time. Thanks again for sharing this book, it looks fantastic! Someone put a lot of time into it and did a great job!

We were planning on doing a state study this summer and I could not have hoped to find a better curriculum! Please enter me!

Beth said...

This is one of those areas my dh would love for me to include. The curriculum looks great.

Thanks for a chance! :)

The sampler book and workbook look really fun. I've been trying to find a state study for my kids. Since we don't live in US, it's harder but all the more important that they learn about their country.

I would love to win this! Thanks!

I am excited about this book. I love the colors, and the layout. All the pertinent info in a non-boring setup. I am looking forward to learning this myself as I did not pay attention when I was in school!!! That's the best part about homeschooling - we get to relearn all this stuff! Lexdi lexpardi@yahoo.com

I have had my eye on these books for a year now. We are planning to do the 50 states this coming year. What a great thing it would be to receive these items free.

WOW! That looks so wonderful! I am overseas, but was looking for some things to teach my children about the U.S. and the flag.

Joni said...

I live in Japan and find it difficult to find things to share with my children the history and joy of learning about the U.S.

This looks fantastic and I think it would be a great way to get the kids excited about learning. I am so excited about the possiblity of winning a copy of this!

I downloaded the sample and it looks great. We have studied the United States but not really the geography of the United States. This would be a great addition to our homeschool study.

Tonna said...

Thanks for showing us the sample pages. It looks great. We just did a lapbook on 2 states. This workbook looks a lot LESS labor intensive. We could actually get through all 50 states!!!

My oldest (who is a geography wiz) is thoroughly enjoying his Children's Geography of the World and the e-book Globalmania. The younger ones were being their finicky selves until they saw the sample pages of the Star-Spangled book and workbook. Now even they are interested! Thank you for making such wonderful products for our children. We would love to win a set!!!

Tracy H said...

This is a very well done book. Right to the point. Colorful. Simple. Even if I don't win I will probably be purchasing it. Thank you. thignite@neo.rr.com

Heather Lynn said...

I am truly excited about this book. I found myself wanting to read through it and learn from it also. I know my children would all enjoy this. I will be purchasing closer to summer even if I don't win. Thank you for this contest. If it were not for it, who knows when I would have run across this book.
