I know most students have gone back to school but did you know here in NJ we don't usually start until after Labor Day? I haven't shared my curriculum choices quite yet as we are still working on some things from last year and getting ready to start some new things next week. So look for that homeschooling post in the near future, well probably some time in October if I'm being honest!
One of the subjects we will be studying this coming year is the 50 States. I was so excited to see National Geographic Kids Books had two new titles that will go perfectly with our studies. NatGeoKids books are always beautiful both in design and content. I've loved using them as solid spines as well as supplements in our homeschool.
