Interesting-and sometimes unusual- events, people, animals, and sites are the subjects of the 44 stories in this U.S. Facts & Fun volume. Each story is followed by a comprehension activity and two 'fun" pages, featuring puzzles, mazes, secret codes, games, hidden pictures, maps, and lots more. Humorous illustrations grab students╣ attention and draw them into the stories. Stories include Dr. Seuss, Tornado Alley, Davy Crockett, Yosemite National Park, and the Morgan Horse. 192 pages.
