M Is For Mitten: A Michigan Alphabet Edition 1. (Discover America State By State. Alphabet Series)
Where was the first mile of highway paved? Who was the 38th President of the United States? What is the nation's most remote National Park? What was the first bottled soda pop in this country? Find the answers to these questions and many more in M is for Mitten: A Michigan Alphabet. Author Annie Appleford has written M is for Mitten: A Michigan Alphabet to acquaint children with the most important people, places and items that have helped mold Michigan into the tremendous state it is. Rich with gorgeous paintings by Michigan artist Michael Monroe, M is for Mitten is both educational for older children and entertaining for youngsters who will surely be dazzled by the diverse and colorful illustrations from cover to cover. Kids can climb an Evergreen tree, hop on the back of a Robin, fly with him of the Mackinac Bridge through the Upper Peninsula for a visit to Isle Royale, before going to Detroit to drink Vernor's and then to Battle Creek to eat Kellogg's cereal. They can paddle in a birch bark canoe with Native Americans in and out of our many Harbors and then head to Lansing for a visit to the Capital. M is for Mitten: A Michigan Alphabet is an all expense paid trip from shore to shore through the Great Lakes State, and you won't need a map - just look at your hand!

We at Michigan Magazine television have had the extreme pleasure to visit with the illustrator, Michael Glenn Monroe, for an upcoming segment in regards to M is for Mitten and Buzzy the bumblebee and have found a wonderful dedication to collaborate with Annie Appleford and Kathy-jo Wargin in creating exciting illustrations that are bound to stimulate and encourage youngsters to learn the alphabet and more about our Great Lakes State!
Beautiful artwork! Destined to be a bestseller in Michigan.

There are three books in one. An ABC book in peotic verse; a factual book with information in the columns on each page and in the fact sheet at the end; plus a richly painted book of art by one of Michigan's best wildlife artists. A treasure for all ages.

Amazing illustrations...great poetry...interesting facts. You'll find all three in this alphabet book about Michigan. Great to read aloud and great to read alone (again and again)....I highly recommend this book (and future books in the series) to all elementary school teachers. My second graders hurried to grab this book after I read it aloud. Unique and such a high-quality book! BUY IT!
