Review quote

"E is for Empire, the Erie Canal, and a new children's book that celebrates New York's History, locations, natural treasures and famous residents. The book, "E is for Empire: A New York State Alphabet," even makes room for Jell-O, the iconic dessert created in Le Roy. Author Ann E. Burg and illustrator Maureen K. Brookfield use simple poems to explore the history of New York State in an effort to educate and entertain young readers, while sidebar expository text delves deeper into the facts and provides older readers with more substantive background information." -- "News (Batavia, NY)" (July 2003)show more
