Lucky to Live in Virginia
By Kate B. Jerome
Arcadia Kids Publishing

In the 41 books in the Lucky to Live in series, Kate B. Jerome takes readers aged 4-7 on a journey of discovering themselves and the place they call home. A mix between a story and a scrapbook, readers can read the rhymes aloud and fill in the pages to make their story of living in Virginia their own tale. They learn interesting facts about the commonwealth and have spots for pasting their own pictures and jotting down their memories. (May 2017)

Accompanying Lucky to Live in Virginia, Jerome has also released a book all about the animals of the commonwealth for those readers who can’t get enough of furry friends, winged beauties and creepy crawly things. The rhymes aren’t just about the animals—they also reflect the important characteristics they possess and showcase the ones we want our children to have (“Try not to think just of yourself,” and “Try not to take a stubborn stand.”).
