Navigating US geography can leave you feeling lost and all over the map. You need to know about all 50 states (Wisconsin has more than 600 kinds of cheese!), different landscapes and climates (from deserts to polar regions), and where to watch out for natural disasters (beware of Tornado Alley!).

How can all these facts and locations make more sense? Infographics! The charts, maps, and illustrations in this book tell a visual story to help you better understand key concepts about our country’s geography.

Crack open this book to explore mind-boggling questions such as:

• How are the 317 million US citizens spread out across the country?
• What happens every day in the United States?
• Where do our natural resources come from?

The answers will help you find your way!
