This book is a wonderful resource for teachers who are teaching about the state of Oregon. This makes it so this book is a great example of an informational text. The illustrations in the book are very well crafted and help the story immensely. The book is also great that it almost has two separate texts, one that is more primary and one that is more advanced and detailed.

Primary, Intermediate, and MiddleGenre: Informational- This is informational because it gives a lot of different facts about Oregon. This book was really interesting since I know little about Oregon and it's history. I thought the facts of this book were realistic and true. One of the main reasons I think this is because Beth recommended it and loaned it out to me. :)

This is an informative alphabet book with thorough historical and geographical lessons on Oregon. Great to use with state history, has some advanced language, also has poetry.

The illustrations are simple, yet beautiful. It is a great book to have in the elementary classroom. It is more than alphabet book, each letter has something from the Oregon coast. For example, A is for Astoria, then it tells about Astoria. I would use this in a classroom for fun and also for teaching about Oregon.

Genre: InformationalAge Appropriateness: Primary/Intermediate/Middle SchoolReview: This is a good example of an informational book because each letter of the alphabet is illustrated by objects that are associated with the State of Oregon and accompanied with more information. The information was accurate and non-bias. It is a great way for individuals to become more familiar with Oregon.Media: This is a good example of pencils media. The pictures and artwork are drawn with pencils of different colors and types, which allows different textures and shades. There is a wide range of lines and shading to enhance the pictures.
