We began by reading O is for Old Dominion and then Bean used the information she learned to make a notebook page for her United States scrapbook.
Last suggestion, although it's not a book... Episode 11 of Liberty's Kids is on Virginia born George Washington and you can watch it on youtube!

The Flowering Dogwood is both Virginia's state tree and flower, so we used this template from Catholic Inspired to make a Dogwood flower craft. The post explains the legend of the Dogwood and how it relates to our faith!
We are headed to New York next!
