"M is for Mitten
the shape of our land.
To see lower Michigan
just hold up your hand."

M is for Mitten is a beautiful alphabet tribute to the great state of Michigan. With poems, beautiful artwork, and background information on each page, this book is entertaining and educational. As much as I love to complain about my home state, books like this remind me why I still live here after all these years.

This book goes through all twenty six letters of the alphabet and relates each letter to an item or person or place special to Michigan. From Kellogg to Ford to White Tailed Deer, this book is about all things Michigan!
I like this book because it makes learning fun. The illustrations of each page really bring the alphabet to life.
I would use this book if I taught school in Michigan, seeing how connections could be made easily.

I’ve had this book read to me so many times. It’s a total need to read for Michiganders! It gives a rhyme and then it gives you background information of that topic. It’s pretty cool book. It might be a little outdated but it’s worth the read. So read it!

We have been collecting all of these A to Z state books at the library and I think this one is one of my favorites by far. The colors and pictures are bright and beautiful. I learned a few things about Michigan by reading this book as well.

Just bought this for a gift for a friend's child who lives in Saginaw - fabluous way to introduce a home state's history to a child, the illustrations are captivating for adults and children alike!

My kids loved this book. They loved learning in detail about the different things that come from or are a part of Michigan. So many mini-lessons can come out of this book.

An awesome read aloud book for younger students, and a great book for older students to even use to get information about Michigan in for a research project.
