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

I also did not know that the typewriter was invented in Wisconsin. For those wanting more information on the topics mentioned in the sto ...more
