Overview


As the creator of the ""Journey Around"" series, author-illustrator Martha Day Zschock has toured the nation from coast to coast, teaching children of all ages about great American places like Boston, New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, and San Francisco, among others. Now the Cape Cod resident turns to one of New England's treasures, the great state of Maine. Like previous volumes in the series, this A-to-Z is much more than an alphabet book. Each page is headed by an alliterative sentence that evokes an important theme about life in Maine. ""Canoes carry campers"" . . . ""Katahdin is king from Kittery to Ft. Kent"" . . . A richly informative paragraph is finished off with a playful factoid. Beautiful full-color illustrations include major family attractions in the state.
