Kaylee and Jimmy invite you along on their adventure of a lifetime-a trip through every state in the United States of America. There's a house only ten feet wide. And a tree house towering ten stories tall. And did you know there's a place where you can dig for diamonds or watch mud puddles boil? And at the end of the book, questions and activities add to the fun. No suitcases needed. Just sit back, open this book, and explore the weird and wonderful places in the USA from the comfort of your favorite chair. Happy traveling "The displays, layouts, photographs and illustrations demonstrate a rich appreciation for the unique and diverse characteristics of each state. Roadtrip is both well-written and researched and provides any tourist a comprehensive collection of sites and locations that are sure to be on the itinerary list of 'can't miss' sites-to-visit. Travelers or armchair travelers] will want to add Roadtrip to their book list." Thomas J. Downs, Executive Director of the Iowa Association of School Boards "This fun-for-all-ages book is a road trip to all fifty states told through the eyes of a twelve-year-old girl and an eight-year-old boy. Each state includes comments from both kids as well as short bits of travelogue information, fun facts about each state, and excellent photos of many unusual and off-the-beaten-path attractions." Kristi Holl, award-winning author of 42 books for children, two nonfiction books for writers, and over 150 stories and articles for children and adults. "This exciting journey through the United States will make the reader wish for their own roadtrip to see these and other weird and wonderful places. The author has filled a niche that is different from other books." Connie Best, media specialist/librarian for twenty-nine years.
