Another Great "Booking Across the USA"

Charlie is at it again and this time he's headed to the South!  Catch him if you can as he checks out the geography of the southern United States and learns about the cities, sites, products, and history that define the South.  Using the search-and-find format, Chuck Nitzberg has hidden Charlie in a series of wacky and colorful state maps. Among each state's major cities, monuments, natural resources, and historical figures, the careful reader can find Charlie before he races off to the next location. This unique combination of I-Spy, geography lesson, map reading, and trivia is jam-packed with information. Where will Charlie go next?  States included: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West and Virginia.

Publisher: Blue Apple Books

Georgia Flag

Did you find Charlie?  I did, but I had to look really hard to find him on the Georgia page in the book. 

Do you know where the Okefenokee Swamp is?  Do you know a place to pick Georgia peaches?  Can you locate a BIG cake?  Have you been to Jekyll Island and walked the beach?  Come discover Georgia's rich and captivating history through this book.  

One of the landmarks of Georgia that I view as instrumental in changing world views is the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King.  I have created a mini-book for children that you can download for free below.  It is a book for the children to add their own pictures.

I am so glad that you dropped by and I hope that you enjoy your free mini coloring book about Dr. King.  

Thank you Jodie for inviting me to participate in this project.  Please travel to Jodie's page to view the "giveaway".  Her page is in the post above.
