Following on the heels of V is for Viking: A Minnesota Alphabet, Kathy-jo Wargin uses simple number concepts to continue her celebration of the great state of Minnesota. In North Star Numbers: A Minnesota Number Book young readers can step back in time and experience nineteenth century army life at Fort Snelling, travel over 3,000 miles of canoe routes, see where thousands of bright yellow Tonka Trucks were made, and view the world's largest hockey stick. From the ancient carvings at Jeffers Petroglyphs to the herds of American Buffalo living in Blue Mounds State Park, North Star Numbers shows that Minnesota has 'countless' treasures for all to enjoy.
