Welcome to Florida! We're glad you're here! Introducing a new series of picture books about each US state.
Children from Florida and those who'd like to visit Florida one day will love this bright, cheerful, fact-filled picture book celebration of "The Sunshine State." With information about the state's animals, plants, regions, food, people, customs, and fun places to visit, this tribute to Florida is the perfect gift for vacationers and residents alike. The warm, bright illustrations highlight the many delights to be found throughout the state, and the easy-yet-informative details ("The smallest post office in the United States is a tiny building in the Everglades") give just the right amount of information to kids from preschool on up.
