Children’s Book Chapters and Drawings
Every chapter portrays an adventure in a different state. Mo and Finchy, the main characters, meet unique and lovable creatures along the way like Annie, the armadillo from Amarillo, and Diana, the butterfly actor. No two adventures or characters are alike!
Read the chapters in order so you can track their journey across the country. But if you don’t want to track,
feel free to skip around to different states.
Every chapter in our free children’s book online about geography and history includes two drawings that complement the adventure in that chapter. (Many of these drawings were created by a high school student!) Children can color the drawings or add their own special touches that make each adventure more real or memorable. You can also download just the drawings in each chapter. Here’s a little secret that not many people know. Most of the chapter drawings were created by a talented high school senior who continued drawing through his freshman year of college.
