If you like the challenge of word games (and also want to improve your knowledge of the United States), this is just the book for you! In it you'll find an entertaining treasury of puzzles focusing on each of the 50 states plus the nation's capital. Each search-a-word features a grid filled with letters of the alphabet. Above the grid is a list of names of state birds and flowers, geographical features such as mountains and rivers, the state capital and other cities, famous residents, as well as products, crops, and other natural resources. Your job is to circle groups of letters that spell the names and words listed above the grid. To make it even more interesting, answers appear vertically, horizontally, and diagonally, and can also be spelled forwards and backwards. These puzzles will not only provide you with hours of fun and entertainment, they'll help you learn all about the fifty states and the District of Columbia. You'll be a fact expert on your country!
