Hidden New Jersey, a seek-and-search book for young and old, was written by Linda J. Barth and illustrated by Hazel Mitchell. More than the shore! Explore the great state of New Jersey from High Point to Cape May, from the Pine Barrens to the Watchungs, from the Lower Delaware to the Jersey shore. The Garden State has it all—history, culture, nature, industry, and fun! Children and their families will love learning about the amazing past and present of America’s third state. Stand on the spot where George Washington stood after crossing the Delaware to fight for American independence. Visit the Cowtown Rodeo in Woodstown for a whoop and a holler. Grab a hammer and mine for your own minerals at the Franklin Mineral Museum. Travel north to south, east to west–—you’ll never run out of amazing things to see and do in New Jersey. And you’ll get some great ideas for day trips. Double-page spreads are jam-packed with colorful illustrations of the people, places, inventions, and attractions in New Jersey. Readers are encouraged to explore a little more and find hidden pictures in each illustration. The author is available to present “Celebrate New Jersey,” a PowerPoint program about the wonders of the Garden State, to groups of all ages and sizes. Click here to contact Linda J. Barth.
