Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Better than a textbook, this alphabetical stroll through Connecticut is pure delight, as are all the books in the 'Discover America State by State Alphabet' series. Everyone can learn something from Connecticut's folklore and history from this enjoyable work. The happy rhymes super-imposed on the illustrations are informative, but more complete explanations are included with each entry allowing for a broad range of facts to be gleaned. For example: the Connecticut Valley has the most dinosaur tracks and footprints in the whole world! Brookfield's illustrations capture the quaintness of colonial life as well as the excitement of Fourth of July fireworks throughout the book. Not just for residents of Connecticut—though this should be recommended or considered for the state book—this work is helpful in studying American history at all levels. Who would have guessed the reasoning behind "The Nutmeg State" as Connecticut's nickname? Yankee ingenuity, indeed! 2003, Sleeping Bear Press, Ages 4 to 8.
