Review quote

"Aimed at ages 9-12, the book takes an alphabetic approach to all things Illinoian, from Jane Addams, bituminous coal and Chicago to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the yield from Illinois farms and some of the various state zoos. 'L,' of course, stands for Abraham Lincoln." -- State Journal-Register ADVANCE PRAISE "This introduction to Illinois history will take you all the way from A (for Jane Addams) to Z (Chicago's Lincoln Park has the oldest zoo in the United States). Kay's clean, factual style gets straight to the point, just the way young readers and listeners like it. The book design is attractive, and the historical photographs alone are worth the price of admission." -- Betsy Hearne, author of Choosing Books for Children "Illinois from A to Z is a delight to the senses. Once again, Betty Kay demonstrates her skills as a writer and educator. This is simply the best introduction to Illinois history for elementary and middle school students." -- Thomas F. Schwartz, Illinois State Historianshow more
