We Love California is a book about the official symbols in California as seen through the eyes of a couple of kids who go on an adventure to find them. They start out real in their car that they had made, and then turn into cartoon characters and we see California through some great illustrations. Each of the symbols is explained and illustrated with an icon in the upper corner that lets you know what symbol it is – for example – state bear, state fish, state flower, etc.
The book is geared towards kids and only about 30 pages long, but it is packed with some great information! I kind of wish I could find a book like this for each of the states so that I could know more about all the symbols. I do know a few but I’ve always teased that I need to know them all before going on Jeopardy. Why I am convinced that will be a category, I don’t know, but it wouldn’t hurt to learn state symbols!
I didn’t even realize states had state soil or ships or drinks! (Or dances…) Yeah, this may be a kids book but unless you are an expert on all things California, you’ll learn a lot too!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
