More than a book. It's an online experience!
Follow the patriotic journey of a little red balloon as it makes its way from the West Coast to the East Coast of the United States.
Through delightful illustrations and the words of "America the Beautiful," one of America's most beloved anthems, children will discover the beauty and diversity of their country. At DiscoverAmericaBook.com they can launch their own balloon while learning fun facts about all fifty states.
This darling book has the lyrics of an old beloved song, mixed with beautiful illustrations. Your journey begins with a red balloon that travels all around the country, visiting 12 different locations throughout the US. Starting at a pier on Pacific Beach, California, and ending at The Statue of Liberty in New York City. The illustrations are lovely and perfectly depict the places the little red ballon passes.
Enjoy this book together as a family, as you learn about our country. At the end, there is a "Discover America" challenge that you can start with your own balloon.
