Overview

As you travel through the Okefenokee Swamp, keep an eye out for Tiger Swallowtails and Brown Thrashers, and be sure to pick some Yellow Confederate Daisies before taking a nap under a Live Oak Tree. This is the Georgia that becomes a wondrous reality within the beautiful rhyming verses of Carol Crane and the colorful images of Mark Braught. At the same time the rhymes entertain and inform younger readers, Crane's in-depth expository text will appeal to older ones, creating a two-tiered teaching tool for educators in the Peach State and across the country.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is an alphabet book that focuses on a variety of aspects of life in Georgia. Told in forced rhyme, each letter has an illustration that appears to be executed in pastels. Sidebars give more details on the subjects mentioned in the rhymes. For example, the letter Y has this rhyme: "Stone Mountain is ablaze with flowers,/honoring three Confederate heroes so high./These rare and cheery blossoms,/Confederate Yellow daisy brings us to Y." Although the idea of this book is sound, it does not really tell the reader about Georgia today, or Georgia's history, and is very segmented. This may prove to be useful in elementary schools and libraries in Georgia. The back cover flap promises "downloadable teacher's guides available" at the publishers' Web site. 2002 Sleeping Bear Press,

I have bought at least 5 Georgia, WV, Kentucky, Texas, Ohio and others. People love getting a book where their child was born. Adults love them and learn tidbits about their state. Best baby gift ever if you are a reader.
