Back of Book:  At the first annual “states party,” Virginia and Idaho hatch a plan to swap spots so each can see another part of the country. Before the party is over, all the states decide to switch places. In the beginning, every state is happy in its new location. But soon things start to go wrong. Will the states ever unscramble themselves and return to their proper places?

My Review: Teaching children about the states names and placement should be fun. However, often going over the states and capitols can be a daunting task how teachers and parents alike. This is a fun picture book that discusses the idea of states switching places and what a mess it would be. The state of Kansas is bored and wants to meet other states so he decides to throw a huge party to meet all the states. During the party the states decide to switch places and see if they like other areas better. They all soon realize that where they are is where they are meant to be.  I think this is a great book to use while discussing difference in the states in the United States of America
