Learning about the state of Illinois

Dear Readers,
    Hello! I am a fifth grade student in Washington state. In fifth grade at our school, we do state reports and I have chosen your state! I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Illinois as I work on my report.
    Most of the information that we get for our reports will be from books and encyclopedias. We also like to get information from people who live in the state, too. This is why I am writing to you. I was hoping that you would be willing to send me some items to help me with my report. It could be things like postcards, maps, pictures, souvenirs, general information, this newspaper article, or any other items that would be useful. I appreciate anything you can send!
