New England
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     The six New England states Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont are beautiful all year. One of the reasons people like to visit these states so much is that there are four very different seasons in New England.
 
2     Many people like to visit the New England states in the fall. The colors of the trees change during the fall. It's like magic. People visit orchards to pick apples, hike the trails, go on picnics, and drink hot apple cider. They take thousands of pictures, too.
 
3     The winter brings snow. Some people dream about flying down a ski slope. Others picture sitting in front of a warm fire drinking hot chocolate. New England is a place where people take horse-drawn sleigh rides. New England looks just like a picture on a Christmas card during the winter.
 
4     In spring the wildflowers bloom. The maple trees flow with sap. Farmers make maple syrup.
