Publisher Comments:

Take a ride on the Reading Railroad! (Either pronunciation of “Reading” works here.) Yes, the Keystone State is rich in history, beauty, and the worlds most delicious cheesesteak (Whiz wit!). Follow Uncle John on a whirlwind tour of Pennsylvania from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh and all points in between with fun articles, amazing facts, vital stats, hometown heroes, and quirky quizzes. Read about…

Americas first zoo

William Penn and his quest for a land of religious freedom

The birth of Little League Baseball

The true story of the Johnstown flood

Encountering bears and boars in the Pennsylvania wilderness

How Ben Franklin invented the political cartoon

The Liberty Bell legends—some of which are actually true

Rockys famous run, and other Pennsylvania movies

Incredible things that can happen “Only in PA”

And much, much more!

Synopsis:

This endlessly readable book covers every inch—geographically, culturally, and historically—of the Keystone State. Uncle John profiles a wealth of Pennsylvania firsts—it is home to the first U.S. zoo, first in the nation in mushroom production, and the leading producer of potato chips and pretzels. How common is a state dog, drink, or soil? Pennsylvania has all three—Great Dane, milk and Hazleton, respectively! Quizzes, puzzles, games, mini-bios, whodunits—all can be found in this fun book thats perfect for a solo or group read.
