California Readin’

Fun books on our state for kids of all ages!


By Connie Goldin, MA, MFT


This spring, Mom to Madre has been exploring California. We’ve learned about the state symbols, icons, and history. Here are some delightful books for children of various ages. The first three books are for younger children and are sturdy board books. The last three are for elementary through middle-school age children, but adults will learn from them, too. California History for Kids has activities you can do with your children. Have a lovely summer learning about California through reading and doing fun things as a family. Please check out our California page for beautiful photos and information!
