Giveaway: Marshall Explores Arizona

By Bianca Schulze, The Children’s Book Review
Published: August 6, 2010

Attention travelers and explorers: Marshall Explores Arizona is the first book in a new series about the United States.

We have two signed copies to giveaway!

Reading level: Ages 3-12

Hardcover: 32 pages

Book overview: This is the first book in a series about the United States.  Marshall the Eagle will visit all 50 states and teach the reader about the state in a fun and exciting way.  William Kirschner’s wife and co-author, Angela, is a former teacher and has prepared lesson plans, worksheets, and assessments that are tied to Arizona’s education standards and may be downloaded for free from www.kirschnerbooks.com to accompany the book.  This will be done for each state.

About the authors: Like Marshall, Angela and Bill Kirschner enjoy traveling and learning. Bill lived in six states while he was growing up, and Angela grew up in Michigan and Nevada. They have an adventurous spirit, a passion for education, and a deep appreciation for this wonderful country—between them, they have visited all fifty states! Both graduated from Hillsdale College in Michigan. After graduation, Bill went into banking and Angela worked in advertising before becoming a teacher. They now live in Arizona with their son, Ethan, and two dogs.

  • What a fun idea for a series! I love teaching my son about different places in the US, and reading about them is definitely the cheapest way to “visit” each state! Can’t wait to see them write about our home state.
