Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Another welcome addition to the alphabet series on states delves into the uniqueness of Kentucky. Each letter features a poem and more in depth information about the topics brought forth in the poem. It is a great way to introduce children to a state that they might be visiting on a trip, moving to with their family, or have a family history with a state. This particular book has tie-ins with the capitol of Kentucky, Frankfort. The state flower, Goldenrod, and the state tree, the Tulip Tree, and the state butterfly, the Viceroy, are all cleverly worked into their part of the alphabet. At the end of the text, there is a facts page to quiz the reader about what they just learned. A reference list gives website listings for further information on items mentioned in the book. The author is a native Kentuckian and her love of the state is shown in this unique book. 2002, Sleeping Bear Press,
