Austin, Lost in America: A Geography Adventure
When I read this title I laughed because there are rhyming words in the title! That made me think this was going to be a joke book, but it really didn’t have jokes in it. Instead, this book had information about the United States of America. The main character is a dog named Austin and he went to his new home in Austin, Texas. “But he knew his home was somewhere in the United States. With the help of a trusty map, he was determined to find it!” On his journey, he saw all of America, like my home in the South and the Midwest where my Grandma used to live when she was young. I like that Austin learns facts about the states and visits special places. He even saw the giant fire hydrant in my city which I have also seen! “The world’s largest fire hydrant, located in Columbia, South Carolina, is nearly forty feet tall and weighs five tons.” This book shows all the states and capitals, and the pictures look kind of like a graphic novel which I enjoy reading. If you like fun books that teach about geography, this is a great choice!
