I Love Maine (I Love to Read Series) - Jeff Cox, Nancy Griffin, and Anne Rosen
Released November 2011
MacIntyre Purcell Publishing
Reviewed by Bob Walch
Here’s a fun and informative board book that will introduce youngsters to some of the wonders of Maine. The rhyming text underscores the state’s diverse natural wonders that range from Mount Katahdin and the Acadia National Park to the abundance of wildlife like moose and bears.
Winter sports and summer fun at the beach are two of the seasonal activities featured as well as industries that include fishing for lobster and scallops, logging, and growing such varied crops as blueberries and potatoes. You’ll also visit the state capitol in Augusta and the famous Fryeburg Fair.
This welcome to Maine is an excellent way of preparing a child for a vacation visit or to remind a youngster of the state’s many attractive features and important livelihoods.
