There are plenty of alphabet books, but when you read about Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe you know you are in Minnesota. These characters are from just one entry in M is for Minnesota, a beautiful children's book that will both entertain and delight readers of all ages. Author Dori Hillestad Butler has hand-picked the best of the state, from the northern tip (N is for Northwest Angle, the northern-most point in the lower 48 states) to the great Mississippi River.Illustrator Janice Lee Porter portrays the subject of each letter in original oil paintings, bringing facts and stories to life. From the blazing Hinckley fire to the serenity of a loon on a lake at sunset, Porter's renderings are filled with rich colors and innovative perspectives. Her style is both thoughtful and charming, appealing to children and adults alike. Not only enjoyable to read, M is for Minnesota is enlightening as well. You'll learn about places like Minnesota's Iron Range, famous for producing high-quality iron ore, and people like "Lucky" Charles Lindbergh, who grew up in Little Falls. Entries feature animals, including timber wolves arid eagles, that call Minnesota home, and events such as the first successful open-heart surgery, performed at the University of Minnesota. This book is a loving tribute to Minnesota. Residents past and present, tourists, educators, and book lovers will relish the opportunity to discover the history, stories, and natural beauty of the Gopher State.
