You’ve probably seen the state alphabet books by Sleeping Bear Press. I had seem them around but didn’t really understand the concept. Now that I’ve had a chance to browse a few, I think they are amazing and this is a great idea! While browsing these books, I kept thinking about my 2nd grade geography project in which I had to write up a whole report on the state of my choosing. If memory serves I choose Michigan. I’m not sure why (as I lived in Texas) but there you have it. I wish I had this book at the time. It’s all the research in one nice and handy little book. I can imagine a great many elementary school teachers being pleased as punch with these books. (If you are such a teacher and have read these books, please leave some of your thoughts below in the comment section!)
