The Michigan Reader for Boys and Girls
Sleeping Bear Press | 2001 | 96 pages
Harking back to the turn of the last century, this early reader is sure to charm students, teachers, and parents alike. In a compact format, The Michigan Reader features poems, short stories, and word games to involve students while educating and encouraging them about their state. Delicate, full-color pencil illustrations by K.L. (Kate) Darnell highlight author Kathy-jo Wargin's enchanting tales of Michigan's heroes (from the fur traders to Sojourner Truth), familiar sights (lighthouses and ships on the great waters), animals and products, with plenty of fun and nonsense in-between to engage young readers!
