Read full description of the books The 50 States:This is that book! You know the one. You pick it up off the floor in your child's room and you just have to open it before you put it in the library basket...the next thing you know, two hours have passed like fifteen minutes and you are armed with more state trivia than you could ever reasonably be expected to remember.
Deliberately designed to pack tons of information on two pages, fun info graphics tell the story of each state. Key facts, notable residents, and loads of interesting information make this a book that you, I mean, your children will return to again and again. Be aware though that the pages could be too busy and overwhelming for some.
Read information about the authorGabrielle Balkan writes for readers of all ages, equally enjoying picture books and readers as chapter books and young adult fiction. Her works include The Dog Rules by Coco LaRue, a Scholastic Book Fairs best-seller that sold 150,000 copies and demanded a follow-up. One of her first forays into writing nonfiction was “America is hard to See,” a children's audio guide for the the inaugural exhibit at the Whitney Museum of Art's Gansevoort location. The 50 States is Gabrielle's first non-fiction book and will be followed by two companion books and one follow-up atlas.
Before embarking on a career as a full-time writer, Gabrielle was a book buyer for the Scholastic Reading Clubs, a commissioning editor for Scholastic Paperbacks, and the Director of Communications for City and Country School.
Gabrielle was raised across from the State Fair Grounds in Indianapolis, Indiana and lived short stints in Augusta, Georgia and Zurich, Switzerland. After graduating with a degree in English and Elementary Education from Barnard College she decided to see what else the city had to offer, and now lives with her family in Brooklyn.
