This vibrantly illustrated compendium explores the beautiful diversity of the people who live, work, and love across the USA in this joyful follow-up to The 50 States.

Across 51 charmingly illustrated infographic maps, covering every state of the USA from Alabama to Wyoming, We Are The United States celebrates the glorious rainbow of different heritages, religions, hobbies, vocations, and cultures that populate this great country.

Say “ha'u” to the Hopi people in Arizona, and “xin chào” to Vietnamese Americans living in Orange County, California. Meet veterans in South Carolina, alligator farmers in Louisiana, and astronauts in Texas. Play with gamers at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles, party with drag queens in Atlanta, and ride with mountain bikers in Moab.

Alongside an illustrated map, each state’s spread features a “Hall of Fame” highlighting important people from the state’s history, as well as “Spotlight” pull-out illustrations showcasing amazing cultural highlights from the area.

Discover the local delicacies enjoyed by each state’s residents, and the unique traditions and celebrations that have been born on and brought to America’s shores. Brush up on key stats and facts about each state’s population, and learn about the powerful history of the people of this one nation, indivisible, the United States.

This is one of the best collections of state’s information I have seen. It is great for upper elementary students and should be included in every school library. The colorful graphics will appeal to students. I appreciate that influential people from each state were included and that they weren’t necessarily the first “famous” person that would come to mind for the state. It was comprehensive with a lot of content on each state’s spread without being overwhelming or cluttered. The information represents many cultures and the regional highlights were spot on. I’m glad Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, American Samoa and Northern Mariana Islands were all included.
