Cool Stuff Every Kid Should Know About U.S. Cities

Arcadia Publishing, the leading local history publisher in the United States, has launched a fun new series about U.S. cities, Cool Stuff Every Kid Should Know.  Children learn best when learning is fun, and the colorful photographs, dynamic graphics, and kid-friendly facts in these easy-to-read books add up to an irresistible package.

The first books in the series cover Charleston, Atlanta, Orlando, Tampa, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Houston and Dallas.  Each book includes sixteen pages of fun facts about the city, plus 32 pages about the state.  Sections like “Sights and Sounds”, “Marvelous Monikers”, and “Dramatic Days” spotlight each city’s unique landmarks, geography, special events, and more.

These handy paperbacks are perfect for popping into a backpack or tossing into the back seat, where kid can quiz each other – or their parents – on fun trivia such as:

  • What event always draws a big crowd on the first Sunday in May in Cincinnati?
    (the Flying Pig Marathon)
  • What city is nicknamed The Big Guava?
  • How many people visit the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo each year?

While kids entertain themselves with Cool Stuff, parents will appreciate that the books are both fun and educational.  They make great stocking stuffers…and families can collect multiple volumes, giving kids a head start on getting to know the cities and states that make up our great country.

Coming in April are books on fourteen more cities:  Columbus, OH; Austin, San Antonio, Columbia, SC; Savannah, Jacksonville, Rochester, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Charlotte, Richmond, Boston and Chicago.
