These books are appropriate for all ages and great for coffee tables.
Alphabet book has somewhat awkwardly rhymed text, but some good supplemental information in the sidebars on each page.

But some choices are befuddling: Aldo Leopo ...more

She has since learned that even though she has published more than twenty award-winning books for children, she still has to wash the dishes. Kathy-jo lives in Minneso ...more
