From A-Z, S is for Sunflower explores the broad plain of history and people that make up the state of Kansas.

Born a few miles and a few months apart, Corey and Devin Scillian would meet 17 years later at Junction City Senior High School. Both graduates of the University of Kansas, Corey is a ceramic artist and Devin anchors the news for the NBC affiliate in Detroit. Devin's other children's books include "Cosmo's Moon, P is for Passport: A World Alphabet, "and the national bestseller" A is for America: An American Alphabet. "The authors live in Michigan with their four children.
