With summer vacation on the horizon and many families preparing to hit the road, kids can amuse themselves with Arcadia's Cool Stuff Every Kid Should Know series - now featuring books about 22 U.S. cities. Grownups appreciate that the books are fun and educational. Kids know what really matters is having the inside scoop. In these books, young readers will discover the sights, sounds, and spirit that define the cities and states that make up our great nation.
Each book includes sixteen pages of entertaining facts about the city, plus 32 pages about the state. Sections like "Strange But True," and "Marvelous Monikers" spotlight each city's unique landmarks, special events, and more. The handy paperbacks are perfect for popping into a backpack or tossing into the back seat, where kids can quiz each other-and their parents-on fun trivia such as:
Which city drops a 1,250 pound acorn on New Year's Eve? (Raleigh)
Where can you see a 45-foot tall sculpture of a clothespin? (Philadelphia)
In which city's zoo are the baboons named after different types of olives? (Rochester)
Kids learn best when learning is fun, and the easy-to-read books in the Cool Stuff series by Kate Boehm Jerome are full of fun facts that kids will want to share with parents, grandparents, and caregivers. Cities profiled in the new books include Columbus, OH; Austin, San Antonio, Columbia, SC; Savannah, Jacksonville, Rochester, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Charlotte, Richmond, Boston, and Chicago.
