I could get a lot of mileage out of this book. First, it's just a fun read. Kids would love following the little girl's travels, in a variety of modes of transportation, around the United States. They'd enjoy hunting down the landmarks from each area. I could also see using the book with fourth or fifth graders to teach a quick lesson on natural resources- if you know the old alphabet book, Q IS FOR DUCK, this book has that kind of "guessing appeal." And people that are not domestically challenged could try out the cherry pie recipe.
Great companion to HOW TO MAKE AN APPLE PIE AND SEE THE WORLD!
