"G is for Garden State" explores the places, people, and landmarks that make New Jersey a fascinating place to live in and to visit again and again.Written in the popular two-tier format for our Discover America State by State alphabet series, young readers will explore state facts through colorful illustrations, rhyming verses, and expository text.
