The Scrambled States of America
What if all the states decided to try living in another part of the country?
In The Scrambled States of America, Uncle Sam narrates a story written and illustrated by Laurie Keller.
From Publishers Weekly:
"Keller endows each of the 50 states with a unique personality and, as all of them develop a case of wanderlust, she presents geography lessons as clever quips exchanged across state lines."Not surprisingly, the states eventually decide they like it better in their "regular" spaces (Florida was too cold up north, and California found itself allergic to Wisconsin's cheese!)
This story is also available as a video and card game. Later, the states got back together to put on a talent show.
