Publisher Comments:

Few other states in our union have the magnificent topography of the Centennial State. This unique Colorado landscape is beautifully represented in the illustrations of Helle Urban, as the rhyming verse and expository text of Louise Whitney defines those images and expands our understanding of the Rockies, Blue spruces, Springs, and Yucca plants that paint this land. An excellent addition to our state alphabet book series, C is for Centennial entertains as it educates and its multi-tiered format makes it accessible for readers of all ages and at all elevations.

Synopsis:

The magnificent topography and wildlife of Colorado--the Centennial State--are brought to life through colorful illustrations and rhyming verse in this state alphabet/picture book that entertains as it educates.

I grew up in Colorado and still own half of our family farm and ranch in there. I love this book and find it to be quite accurate and beautifully done. As a newly retired elementary teacher, I'm buying a copy for my niece who just started teaching 4th grade in Colorado. Next year she gets to teach Colorado history! What an excellent resource this will be for her and her students.

We checked this book from the library before a trip to Colorado...and now we MUST buy it! It is a wonderful intro to Colorado sites and facts. Each letter of the alphabet has a 4-line poem...but there's more: there are also multi-paragraph descriptions as sidebars. For the younger kids, you can just read the poems. The illustrations are beautiful. A very well-done book, my 5-year-old especially loves it.
