Booking Across The USA

When the opportunity arose to represent Oregon for Booking Across The USA, I had to take it. Blogging, books, and my state coming together? Yes please!

Myself and at least one blogger from every state is participating!




It's put on by Jodie from:


Picking one book to represent my state was hard. There are several great Oregon books out there like Weird Oregon,  Goodnight Oregon, and B is for Beaver.  I also own two of the three and love them, but I would suggest Weird Oregon for 2nd grade and higher.

I ended up choosing O is for Oregon written by kids for kids. I have this book and love it!





   
 The book description says: O is for Oregon combines photos with fun and informative couplets which describe the pictures and offer clear picture/word associations. Intriguing facts will add to the non fiction learning experience.                                                 

 I love this book because it shows some of the best parts of Oregon from the Oregon Trail  to Mt. Hood. And I also love the rhymes for each picture, written by kids.

I've created a freebie to go along with O is for Oregon. Inside are three activities and a fact sheet for Oregon, that correlate with the book!


Here is a peek at some of the pages. There are more!


Just click either picture to go to the document!
