Martha Zschock lives with her family on Cape Cod. A former elementary school teacher, she was inspired by field trips with her students to write her first book, Journey Around Cape Cod from A to Z. Martha's journey has continued with more books in the series from other places including, Boston, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago, Maine, Nantucket, and New York. Martha and her family enjoy the journey of creating the series, which includes lots of traveling, writing, painting, and meeting lots of wonderful children and adults along the way. Martha often collaborates on projects with her twin sister, Heather, an art director and freelance designer. When her twin sister had a baby, Martha began writing and painting for a new "Hello!" series of board books which take the youngest explorers on journeys to several locations such as Florida, Brooklyn, Washington DC, Boston, Yellowstone, and America.
Hello, Maine!by Martha Zschock
The author of best-selling board books on Boston and Cape Cod, Martha Day Zschock, moves up the New England coast to the great state of Maine. A pair of moose, father and child, explore from the rocky coast to the heights of Katahdin, the highest mountain in the region. They explore lighthouses and tidal pools and fish for lobsters and dig for clams. They drive the coast in an old pickup, sail from island to island, and camp out under the stars. Little children and their parents will love this beautifully illustrated view of Maine! For ages 2-5.

I gave this to my son (almost 3 years) on our way to Maine. He loves it, and it helped him get excited about our destination. Later, we read it and talked about which things we had done during our trip. I think it reinforced the memories we made. The text is silly but cute, and the illustrations are nice and colorful. My only criticism is that the fishing page talks about bait and waiting, but the illustration shows the moose fly fishing.
