I am looking for moives and books that are entertaining but for younger kids (8 - 13) about the individual states. Things I have found for the ones we have done so far include: Hawaii ~ Leilo and Stitch (only the first one) Alaska ~ Alaska (Dad gets in an airplane crash and two kids go and save him, they also stop a poaching opperation on the way... for the older kids) Stuff like that. Book ideas are getting scarce as we move away from the 'popular states' as well. Books for North Dakota? Or Missouri? Washington I found E Is For Evergreen, and for Oregon I found Apples to Oregon (Henderson Luelling, which we also studied when working on Oregon a little bit). Anything like that... I was thinking it may be easier from other states to find/know books about your area. Because I know I had no issue until I moved away from the Pacific States (I live here). Thanks so much! BTW, if you are interested in our study we are doing... here is a link with all the info, links, and books we have used so far. Homeschooling in the Rose Garden: USA Enjoy!
