#FunFacts #Oregon

Oregon lays claim to the deepest lake (Crater Lake), the shortest river (the D river), the deepest river gorge (Hell‘s Canyon) and the smallest park (Mill Ends Park). Portland is the home of the most breweries in the US (not surprising) and also the home of the most strip clubs in the nation (What!?!). We also have the most ghost towns, 1/4 of the nation‘s llamas and the hazelnut is our state nut. The only state to have one.

Sparklemn Definitely would not have guess about the strip clubs! 😂 2w
Susanita A state nut. Brilliant! 2w
ChaoticMissAdventures My office is right by Mill Park! 2w

dabbe Very interesting, and it gives me an idea. We should all have a state NUT that's in our legislature. We can vote for him/her/them every year--kind of like giving out a Darwin award. Yeah, I'm not looking forward to election season. 🤣🤣🤣 2w
Deblovestoread @dabbe. Me, too but I have some prime candidates for the state Nut elections 😂 2w
RebelReader My grandparents lived in Oregon for years. I want to go back and visit because all I got to see was their house when we‘d visit. 😏 2w

I loved this book! Incredible read, and filled with so many facts! A great book to read to your students to get them to be little environmentalists! Definitely a good book to read before introducing a green project within the classroom!


Great children‘s read about stuff that happens around the world every day!

When I heard the Scholastic Book Fair was happening at Captain Adorable‘s school I couldn‘t contain my excitement. Neither could he. A perfect early birthday shopping adventure for this almost 8 year old.

Jeg Those book fairs are great. We have one every year in the school where I volunteer. 1y
MicheleinPhilly Good grief, he has gotten big! 1y
Suet624 @Jeg I was talking with him about how they had this book fair when I was growing up. I always loved it. I'm sure we'll be skipping to the Fair next year. :)

Suet624 @MicheleinPhilly I know! I'm so glad I live so close to him so that I get to see him grow up. I have two other grandsons who live in DC and I don't get to see them as often. Their growth spurts always shock me. 1y
babyruth2510 Those were my favorite days at school. 1y
Suet624 @babyruth2510 Yes! Me too! 1y
Nute This is bringing back such wonderful warm memories!😃 1y

ValerieAndBooks Almost 8?! No way! I‘m sure you both had fun at the book fair! 1y
Suet624 @BarbaraBB He waited all day, so he was super excited!!! 1y
Suet624 @batsy It's actually the most natural photo of him in ages. For so long he would make a goofy face every time I'd take a shot of him. It was nice to see his normal smile. :) 1y
Suet624 @ValerieAndBooks We had a lovely time. I'm so glad book fairs still happen at schools. 1y
Suet624 @LeahBergen I know! :( Too fast. 1y
