Mustached Mr. Geo takes young readers on a tour of Pennsylvania in this lively installment in the Green Light Readers series. Beginning in Philadelphia, he takes in ... many of the city's cultural and historic sites (e.g., the Liberty Bell, the Philadelphia Museum of Art).... Amish country, Hershey Park, Pittsburgh, and Punxsutawney, among other locales. Colorful, cartoonlike illustrations offer context clues and maps, and they often show Mr. Geo holding something iconic (a quill pen, a Philly cheesesteak). ... A pleasing way to travel and learn. ~ ALA Booklist (October 2015)

... After showing the state's location on a map, [Mr. Geo]participates in a Fourth of July parade and then highlights sites and artifacts that honor the founding of the United States. [He visits] the Philadelphia Museum of Art... and lists important inventions that originated in the state. ... A lot of information is packed into this thin book. Includes a Fast Facts page, a timeline, suggested activities, and a glossary. ~ Children's Literature
