Lynne Cheney’s third children’s book is out, “Our 50 States,” and it is a grand romp through American history and the unique histories of each of the states. It is the perfect Christmas gift for any child and many adults.
Warning: The book does short Ohio, home to the most presidents and lynchpin of the union. (No Grant, no Union.) New York, Pennsylvania, California, and Texas all receive two page spreads, while, inexplicably, Ohio receives only one.
