Tangled States

Coloring book

It's a coloring book.... it's a geography lesson... relax, color, enjoy and learn.

“Tangled States” contains each of the 50 states that make up the United States of America.  Within each state drawing, you will find the two letter abbreviation either hidden or not so hidden!  Oregon is the only exception as it is very first state drawing which was the inspiration for the book. This newly revised book has a bleed page between each page for those who color with gel pens or markers that tend to bleed through to the next page.  Check this book out as a teaching tool for kids or just enjoy revisiting the shapes of each state in the Union yourself as you color your way across the USA!


One of the most original coloring books I have seen. Each State was so well thought out. This can be a gift for most everyone you know because there is something for everyone. I showed mine to a friend who colors all of the time and told her I was buying her one. She is going to color the 3 states she has lived in and frame them. Just a great book!
