Say hello to Mr. Geo, everybody's favorite geography teacher! He loves to explore new places. Today he is visiting Illinois, the Prairie State. His first stop is Chicago for a colorful kite-flying festival and a visit to the Field Museum to see the biggest T Rex skeleton ever found! He's also going to ride riverboats, see amazing skyscrapers, work on a farm, climb the mysterious Cahokia Mounds, and see historic places where Abraham Lincoln lived and worked. Join Mr. Geo on his travels around Illinois. Together, you will discover what makes this a state to celebrate. Includes maps and learning activities. Colorful, you-are-there illustrations, the highly animated narrator, and easy-to-decode text are great for beginning and newly independent readers.
