WELCOME TO FLORIDA is a fun touristy picture book about the state of Florida. The book goes through some of the key information about the state, such as NASA, the many orange trees, Little Havana, and fun features, like the smallest post office in the US. Full-page illustrations with lots of fun details accompany each page. There is a lot to learn about the state in an approachable way through this picture book.

What I loved: The book contains a lot of fun facts and is like a tourist guide for young children. There's much to learn from wildlife (I didn't know there were manatees in the Florida rivers) to the state flower to unique features. This book would be perfect to give to children before a trip to the state, as a way to introduce it and show some key features. The illustrations are also great with lots of color, interesting details, and diverse children. The writing would work well for the preschool and elementary school crowd.

Final verdict: An intriguing travel guide for young readers, WELCOME TO FLORIDA is a fun picture book with facts and information about the state. Would recommend before taking a trip- or just to learn more about the state.
