"I love these books--and so will upper elementary readers. Graphic novel conceits are well integrated with a diverse cast of characters. Subject-area content feels organic and the back-matter adds to--rather than waters down--the narratives. The recurring characters, Spanish-language, vocabulary support, and clear parallel structure between the books in a series will engage avid and struggling readers alike. I can't wait to see what's next!"
—Dr. Wendy Stephens, Assistant Professor of Library Media, Jacksonville State University


"M is for Mitten: A Michigan Alphabet is one of my Michigan favorites. It's a creative and imaginative way to teach young children about the wonders of our state. It not only helps them learn the alphabet, but also instills, at an early age, pride in this place we call home. If you are a Michigan native, or if you have never visited our state, M is for Mitten will give you a sense of joy and awe about the Great Lakes state."
—Jennifer Granholm (Michigan Governor)
