Now that I’m back in the states I can now continue with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” this week’s review of a children’s book isn’t a Christian work but still something homeschool kids and parents would appreciate!

Geronimo Stilton.  Following the Trail of Marco Polo. New York, NY: Papercutz, May 11th 2010. 56 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is the fourth graphic novel in the Geronimo Stilton Graphic Novel series published by Papercutz though it was the first volume I read to my daughters.  We totally enjoyed it!  In fact this volume is our favorite one and made us consider to read more of Geronimo Stilton’s adventures!

This is a Christian Home School Lesson Series for first graders on the 50 United States.

I typically go over two states at a time since we teach our kids multiple subjects during the day and two states at a time seems to be enough.  However if one is teaching one subject at a time I think going over four states at a time would be just right.

Our series’ lesson plan will be in alphabetical order and go over four states at a time.

Are there any other interesting facts you would add for any of the states mentioned?  Feel free to leave a comment!
