The Most Fun Way to Explore the USA!

Exclusively from the Fun with a Purpose™ experts at Highlights, Which Way USA takes your child on a state-by-state adventure through the most exciting locations in America.

With each fun and engaging puzzle book and map set, children will learn about geography, history and culture, and even practice school skills — all without ever leaving home!

A One-of-a-Kind American Travel Adventure

Which Way USA combines puzzles, map activities and a "race across the states" to make it a fun way to learn about geography for kids ages 7 and up.

Which Way USA state adventure kits include:

  • Illustrated, Fact-Packed State Maps that spark kids’ sense of adventure
  • Challenging 36-Page Puzzle Books that encourage exploration of culture, history and landmarks through play

Your Child Will Build Skills Through Play

Which Way USA isn’t just about puzzling and fact-finding… it’s also a game!

Your kids will race through the puzzle challenges in each state set. The more puzzles they complete, the more points they'll earn -- helping them to out-solve the friendly competition in each book.

Your kids will have so much fun, they won’t even realize they’re learning!

Dear Parent,

Recently, I sent home an order form for Which Way USA from Highlights for Children — a special offer that’s available only through schools. Highlights products are fun, and they help children sharpen reading, thinking and learning skills at home. Whether or not you decide to participate, please be sure to sign the slip and return it to school immediately so that we can place our order and earn valuable classroom materials from Highlights.
