Description

Learn about the history, scenery, and people of Washington in this charmingly illustrated exploration of the only U.S. state to be named after a president. Die-cut in the shape of the Evergreen State, it carries kids and adults alike on a journey through the Cascade Range mountains (including a stop at the volcano Mount St. Helens) and into the Hoh Rain Forest—one of the only temperate rainforests in the continental United States. Full of fun facts on Seattle, Spokane, the Lewis-and-Clark trail and more, State Shapes Washington is an exciting addition to the State Shapes series.
