We're off to New Mexico next week. How best to learn about the wonders of this place? How about taking a look at the wonders a child might seek out?

And so E is for Enchantment.

My thoughts? A perfect overview. I know now to look for ristras (those strings of chili peppers that ward off the wicked) and pueblos (including Taos, apparently) and kokopelli (flute player petroglyphys). And more.

It was cool to read this again (even though a lot of the "why" behind my reading it was so I can accomplish my reading goal... don't judge me :P) since it's been a while. My birthmother gave it to me a few years ago since she lives out in New Mexico so it was nice to be able to understand it vs. last time where I think I just read the rhymes only...

I loved this book. It has simple, lyrical rhymes highlighting things local to New Mexico.

A beautiful alphabet book that holds so much more for adults and bigger kids as it has finer details on each page such as facts or history relevant to that letter. The art is beautiful and full color, tasteful and intelligent.

We picked this copy up at the library, but I'm thinking this deserves a place in our permanent collection. Highly recommended to anyone who lives in, or has been to New Mexico!

This book contains a lot of fun facts about New Mexico. Set up in an alphebetical format, this book connects each letter with something unique about the state and supports it with great detail and informational facts. It would be good for a project study about the state of New Mexico.
