What are people saying about the book?

"I bought this book for my 10-year-old daughter and she loves it. She started reading it and doing the activities as soon as we received it. She even insisted on taking it with her when we went on a trip to Texas this summer! She likes to quiz us on the Michigan facts in the book to see what we know and takes special pride in the knowledge."

    Angie Richardson-Smith

"We bought this book to use as part of our homeschooling unit on our homestate of Michigan. I have looked through several other books for kids about Michigan and I must say how impressed I am with this one. My 8-year-old daughter, 12-year-old son and 14-year-old son all really like it. The actual color photos are great as some books just use illustrations."

    Homeschooling Mom

"My son and I really enjoyed reading the Curious Kids' Activity Guide to Michigan. I especially liked the way it was interdisciplinary, including some science, social studies, and math. "
