With Memorial Day over, it's time to start thinking about Summer. And I don't know about you but this time of year makes me want to go on some family trips.
Well, I just received a book called: Boston and the State of Massachusetts:: Cool Stuff Every Kid Should Know (Arcadia Kids).
In this book you will find: HOW one Boston building provides a daily weather forecast?
(Hint: If you know the poem you can crack the code!)
WHAT popular spot in the city was once used for such
things as livestock grazing and public hangings?
(Hint: It's been public property for a long time!)
You can find these answers and more in this book.
My husband and I grew up in Massachusetts and have been to many of the sites in the book. Like the Swan boats and Faneuil Hall and more, but one place my husband noticed in the book he never went to (even though he lived not to far from it) is Castle Island which has a cool fort called Fort Independence built during the Revolutionary war.
This book has lots of information like the state bird, great museums to visit and lots more. This is great for kids and the whole family, with lots of colorful pictures! And the good news is there are books on 22 U.S. Cities so you may find one for your state!
