Welcome to the United States of America! The U.S.A. is the third largest country in the world, and also, one of the most beautiful. It is full of lakes and rivers, mountains and canyons, beaches and deserts. It has many different trees and flowers, and all sorts of different crops grown for use as food. And, of course, America has birds and animals of all kinds. Last, but not least, the United States has about 300 million people, from many different backgrounds and cultures.

In this book you’ll meet five adventurous friends, Wandering Willy, Nosy Normie, Meandering Mickey, Sightseeing Susie, and Exploring Ellie. Together they will help you learn about the land, cities, animals, and other wonderful things in each of the fifty states in the U.S.A. Along the way, you’ll also meet fifty other friends of theirs, each who will host one of the five friends and teach them (and you!) about his or her state. These fifty friends are very special! They are each named after the capital city of their state.


Thank you so much for your books. They are wonderful! My Elementary 2 teacher is excited to use them this year – Mary Lyman, Montessori School Director

This is a great book that gives kids a fun way to learn more  about the states. The rhymes are inventive and cute. This book fills a  real niche. There are so few books on geography for kids, especially  ones that actually appeal to kids. – Keiko Wu, Parent

Thank you for your book Friends and Mates in Fifty States. It is a great book and we know the children who use our library will be thrilled with it. – Shellie Williams, Director, Minerva Free Library                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               I just wanted to let you know that I received your bullying book yesterday.  I haven’t had a chance to read it, but it does look interesting.  Also I wanted to let you know that I bought two copies of your book about the states.  That book is terrific, simple to read and it gives just enough information to get them familiar with each state.  Great kickoff for the students when they are working on the reports.  Also the maps of each state are very colorful. Great layout.   – Ann Matics
