    1. This book is for older children (my 4-year-old hated it and didn't want to go past letter D but my 8-year-old thought it was okay).Each page has a little rhyme to go with the letter but it also has a sidebar that gives more information about the topic for that letter. For example, letter B is for bees and says, "Busy Bees, that what we are--Our symbol is the hive.From mining to technology,this helps our state survive."The sidebar says, "The state insect is the honeybee. On the flag, bees buzz ar [...]

    2. I was surprised by this book, and by the fact that there is one for almost every sate. It is a fun way to look at aspects of the State of Utah. The author was able to write this book for two different audiences. On each page there is a paragraph giving background information to a part of Utah matching its respective alphabet, there is also a sentence or two explaining the same information in a simpler manner.

    3. Loved it! Great history/geography book about Utah from A-Z! Easy reading text on one side with more in-depth information on the other side for older readers, and fun pictures. Covered topics like Utah national parks, historical influences like the railroad and pony express, and good objective information on the Mormon settlers.

    4. I thought it was just a simple Alphabet book but it is filled with information about Utah that is great for older kids too.

    5. This book can be read on two levels--the simple abc poems about Utah or with the more detailed facts on the sidebars. The illustrations are interesting.

    6. Really Great! We learned so much and are now planning field trips to lots of these neat places. For sure we'll be purchasing this one! Now I want the one for Wyoming.

    7. Colorful illustrations! Love this book for teaching Utah history, landmarks and what this cool state is known for!
