I like to read books about our states because I enjoy learning about them. My favorite book was about California because it is a big state and the most populated state in America. I also liked the book about Texas because it is also a big state.

I read that New York’s population is more than 19 million — that is a lot of different stories. And not least is Hawaii, because it’s a beautiful little small state.

So far I have 37 state books, including one about Washington, D.C. There are not too many more to go, and I will know all there is to know about the great American states.
