Overview

I Love Maine introduces young children to where they live or visit. With enchanting illustrations and a gentle and simple rhyming scheme, I Love Maine takes children on a whirlwind tour of the state and builds pride in place and encourages discovery.

Watch as your child discovers the Paul Bunyan statue in Bangor, the Acadia National Park Nature Center, the Palace Playland and Portland Headlight & Museum (Maine's oldest lighthouse). From playing on one of the beaches or enjoying a skate on a Maine pond in the winter, watching lobster boats fishing off the coast or trying to spy a moose in the Maine Wildlife Park, I Love Maine makes the state come alive.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Bright, simple illustrations and gentle rhyming scheme, this board book is certain to become a reading time favorite of any toddler." —Portland, Maine Morning Sentinel (January 27, 2012)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
At times the text in this board book seems a bit forced, as it rhymes and presents a paean to the state of Maine. However, it might be an interesting choice for families considering a vacation, since it highlights places like Acadia National Park and relates some interesting facts—the capital city is Augusta, the state tree is the pine tree, and the major items produced or harvested are lumber, blueberries, potatoes and lobsters. The one piece of trivia that was new was learning that Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox were once residents. Somehow I had always associated them with Minnesota. It was also amusing to read that there are more trees than people. While summers are pleasant and children are shown at the beach, my experience has been that the water is too cold for swimming. The biggest attractions on my trips to Maine were the beauty along the shoreline and the wonderful winter activities. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
