The Ohio Reader by Marcia Schonberg. Ms. Schonberg has also written B is for Buckeye: An Ohio Alphabet Book, and Cardinal Numbers: An Ohio Counting Book.
I love using this book to teach Ohio History. It is a great book with nice pictures and short stories about Ohio. There is poetry, biographies, timelines, and facts about Ohio. If you check out all three they would be a great read for kids 6-12 years old.
I enjoy learning about Ohio, and must admit that finding books about Ohio has become a past time. Ms. Scholnberg's books are a wonderful way to incorporate Ohio history and facts into your home education curriculum.
