These different monuments and allusions can be particularly engaging for intermediate grades readers or those with a love of geography. This balance of simple, repeated sentence patterns with in-depth geographic knowledge make this a good family read-aloud choice.

I can see sharing this with a class of 4th or 5th graders, and then asking them to create a page with two places in your state and a verse for each place. You could create a book with all of those pages. It would also be great as part of a lesson on adverbs. To sum up my feelings in a couplet:
I love you Americanly, I must be confessin'.
This is one sensational geography lesson.
