Children's LiteratureThis title is part of the "Discover America State by State" series. These books allow the reader to explore a state by using the alphabet as a guide exploring interesting facts and people native to the state. The text includes a rhyme for each letter of the alphabet and more detailed information for older readers. It also includes a short quiz at the end of the book on Wisconsin, which is a good tool for young readers to test reading comprehension. Rene?e Graef has beautifully illustrated this book. The deep earthtones and realistic portraits of persons from various ethnic and racial backgrounds are of a very high quality. I found this book very enlightening and enjoyable. I certainly did not know that the first kindergarten was started in Watertown, Wisconsin. This would be a great book for any school or public library. 2004, Sleeping Bear Press, Ages 7 up.
