parents, and armchair travelers. Here's what they have to say:
"It's so refreshing to read information on the internet that sounds
like I'm speaking to you! Your diary is informational and intellectual.
Your sense of humor is droll and refreshing! . . . I teach fifth grade and
what you are doing is exactly what we are studying in the classroom. I hope
you keep this site running for many years to come. It provides a rich source
of information for my students! I also admire you for your ambition to accomplish
your dream. Through you, everyone will be able to catch a personal glimpse
of each of the 50 states." --Fifth Grade teacher
"First I want to compliment you on your web page. What a great design!
It is very clear, concise, easy to read and understand, and pleasant on
the eyes. Second, what a great and original idea! Taking a long American
road trip, having a corresponding web site, and sending images and descriptions
to anyone who signs up. This should have been done long ago." --Media Director
"This is great for my 4th grade classroom---states are my entire curriculum!" --Fourth Grade Teacher
"Hi: I really enjoy the postcards. What a neat way to teach social

what we can do on the net." --University Professor

Social Studies in middle school! Wow, what a wonderful treat your site is.

together. We take our hats off to you ! " --Parents

use of the web."--Single Mom

my home. Thank you. "--Teacher/Parent
"My beautiful, bright granddaughter is 9 years old and studying
about different cultures here in the US. I think she will love getting your
postcards. I have already written to you from my work and have requested

sent to two addresses. Good luck." --Grandmother
