Description


Located in the southwest, along the border with Mexico, New Mexico is home to amazing desert scenery and a distinct local culture.

A True Book: My United States series allows readers to experience what makes each of the fifty state distinctive and exceptional. Readers will get to know each states' history, geography, wildlife and future outlook. This series includes an age appropriate (grades 3-5) introduction to curriculum-relevant subjects and a robust resource section that encourages independent study. Readers will sample a little bit of everything the state has to offer, from food and art to sporting events and festivals, as they learn about its history, culture, and wildlife.
