Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There are enough special people, wildlife, and natural wonders in the Lone Star State to fill several alphabet books, and Sleeping Bear Press has picked out the finest to represent Texas in L is for Lone Star: A Texas Alphabet.

Author Carol Crane has worked for twenty-five years reviewing, lecturing and enjoying children's literature. She is a respected national educational presenter, speaking at state and regional reading conventions across the United States. As a historian, Carol loves to read all historical markers. She is still stopping and reading them across Texas.

Illustrator Alan Stacy is a self-taught artist, but his first practical art lessons came at age 6 from his mother, Jeanne, who is a fine artist. His father Fearl, an Air Force pilot and officer, took the family to Germany, Virginia, Alaska and New Mexico before settling in Texas in 1975. The time they spent outdoors siteseeing, camping and hiking in the American West and Pacific Northwest instilled within Alan a profound love of animals and nature, which is reflected in his art.

With poems to engage younger readers and text to give further details for older students, Lone Star is a fantastic tool for sharing Texan pride with the ones you love. So lasso a copy of L is for Lone Star and get ready for a very special ride through the alphabet!

Synopsis:

Crane captures the wonders of Texas with her rhymes for the letters of the alphabet and expository text that explore Texas history, landmarks, wildlife, and accomplishments.
