Across the USA Reading Challenge Bundle
(Free Ground Shipping on your entire order when you purchase Across the USA Reading Challenge Bundle)
You've probably heard about the tremendous benefits of reading with your child. But did you know art has a powerful impact as well? If you or your child have ever struggled with self-regulation (e.g., staying calm amid frustration), consider adding art back into your day.
Timberdoodle's Across the USA Reading Challenge Bundle pairs art with reading to spark creativity and capture imaginations. Your children can color as you read, while they listen to an audiobook, or just to celebrate the finishing of another book!
Build a Giant Poster Coloring Book: United States Map
Twenty-four individual pages include capitals, fun facts, and whimsical images of regional landmarks to color. Each page is unbacked and perforated for easy removal. Once you've colored all your pages, simply tape them together to create a 44" x 47¼" map!
Across the USA Reading Challenge Ebook
With your purchase of the Across the USA Reading Challenge Bundle, we include a Timberdoodle-exclusive ebook that lists 15-30 book suggestions per state - over 1300 suggestions total!

Of course, many titles will be of interest to teens or adults as well, or choose your own titles!

My daughter loves piecing together the map and learning about the states as she colors!
This is a huge poster to color and hung up in your classroom. A great challenge for the kids!
I bought this just for the book list alone. I will be using the new Notgrass 50 States for my 4th grader this year, and this book list is perfect.
We had a blast doing this reading challenge! Discovered many authors we would normally not pick out from, and actually ended up loving!
Finding a curated list or US picture books that goes State by state is harder than I would have thought! This is a great one- I just plugged it into my library request system! My kids LOVE to color these posters as I read about each state. It helps make a genuine geography connection, and makes a wonderful wall display in our playroom- as well as a fun trigger to the memories we are making this summer!
