The Smithsonian’s Young Explorers 50 States case has a puzzle, map and booklet full of very cool facts about each state. Parents, teachers and young readers will enjoy discovering their world.

The fact book lists the states in alphabetical order. Young explores will learn that Arkansas has a diamond mine where anyone can find diamonds and keep them. Kansas has a salt mine that is 65 stories below Hutchinson. The state of Massachusetts is where the game of basketball was invented by a gym teacher. Nevada is home to the Hoover Dam and Oregon is home to the deepest lake, Crater Lake, in the United States.

There is a ton of information packed onto these pages. Each state has a “Did You Know?” section, famous people list, state capital, bird, nickname and flower. Readers will also see a picture of each states flag. The map is colorfully illustrated and matches the 130 piece puzzle. The back of the book has a glossary of terms. Teachers will find this box of tools very handy for a class room of learning. Parents will enjoy the ease of storage in this handy case.
