This board book is the ideal way to introduce a small child to
the sights of Maine. The youngster will discover that Maine is known
as the "Pine Tree State" and is home to not only mountain
and forest creatures but also plenty of seashore critters.
Famous for its scallops, shrimp and lobsters, the state also has
a timber industry and a thriving agricultural sector that produces
potatoes, blueberries and Christmas trees. As the child pages through
this book, he or she will visit the famous, coastal Acadia National
Park, Mount Katahdin, and the state capitol in Augusta.
Whether you live in Maine or are planning a visit in the near
future, this is an excellent book for showing a child the many wonders
of this northern New England state. The illustrations are quite
good and the material it contains is very informative.
