Fifo is a brown bear who dreams about visiting all 50 states and learn all he can about them!
Our friend. Fifo, is travelling all around the country, from one state to the other in alphabetical order. Every page is about a state and there is a really nice picture too!
Through this lovely journey, children get to learn a few things about each state in a rhythm! There is the state name and the capital and its numbering too! There is also the state flower, tree and bird in that little poem! In the bottom of the page, our little friends can read the state’s motto!!!
On the other page, that hosts a picture about the state, there is always Fifo, doing what somebody would do in that state, like surfing in Hawaii or canoeing in Idaho! All the nice things that are part of the poem are visible in the picture too! As well as the state map is drawn somewhere highlighted with the state initials! There is also a bit of the state’s history hidden in there along with any kind of activities or festivities that make the state known! One can also see the crops, orchards or animals to be found in the state, which is very nice for the children to see!
The illustration is done by Jesse B. Orlet and is really enjoyable! The lovely bear, the beautiful state scenes, the animals, birds and nature represent each state quite lovely!
