childrens-books-georgiaWe love reading in my house and one of my favorite ways to spark interest in reading whenever we are in a reading rut is to read books that will spark your little ones back into reading. There are a few book authors that have created a series of children’s books that share fun landmarks and facts about all of the 50 states. I don’t mean in one book, but rather a book for each state. So I’ve made a list of books that mention Georgia in them since that is where we are. Most of the books listed below are also available for other states as well. Our favorites are the holiday-themed ones. We have the Littlest Bunny in Georgia and Santa is Coming to Georgia! Check out the books in your state!

P is for Peach: A Georgia Alphabet – As you travel through the Okefenokee Swamp, keep an eye out for Tiger Swallowtails and Brown Thrashers, and be sure to pick some Yellow Confederate Daisies before taking a nap under a Live Oak Tree. This is the Georgia that becomes a wondrous reality within the beautiful rhyming verses of Carol Crane and the colorful images of Mark Braught. At the same time the rhymes entertain and inform younger readers, Crane’s in-depth expository text will appeal to older ones, creating a two-tiered teaching tool for educators in the Peach State and across the country.
