New Alphabet books from SBP

I've written quite a few reviews of the different Alphabet series titles Sleeping Bear Press publishes and ya'll know how much I love them. Reviewing them over and over again can get a bit repetitive, but a few have been released lately that I at least wanted to let you know about. Such a great series!

S is for Smithsonian by Marie and Roland Smith with illustrator Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen is part of the "America's Museum Alphabet" series and was released in April and covers all things Smithsonian, including a really nice map of all the museums on the National Mall in D.C. I've been to all of these, which made it more fun to flip through and see what the authors covered.

G is for Gladiator: An Ancient Rome Alphabet by Debbie and Michael Shoulders and illusrator Victor Juhasz (April) and B is for Bagpipes: A Scotland Alphabet (February) are both part of the "Discover the World" series. Each covers all sorts of facts and people and places around the specified country. AND there's a companion website for these books at It's interactive for the kiddos and has recipes, travel tips, links, games, etc.

If you haven't checked out these Alphabet books yet, you're definitely missing out. They cover so much information in a fun, inviting manner aimed at young
children through middle grade. There are tons of them, featuring all sorts of countries, cultures, and things, you're bound to find something that is intriguing to your children.

All three of these were review copies. Thanks Sleeping Bear Press!
