L Is for Last Frontier
An Alaska AlphabeteBook - 2002
Unrivaled by any other state for sheer size, Alaska is a land of mystery and wonder to many Americans. Bordered by water on three sides, it remains a remote and last frontier...until now. L is for Last Frontier: an alphabet book written by Carol Crane, takes readers on an informative adventure through the 'land of the midnight sun.' Lecturer and book reviewer Carol Crane was recently described as 'A walking, talking bibliography of children's books.' Her twenty-five years in children's literature supply the essential experience to bring Alaska's vast wildlife and culture to children. Alaska's sheer size lends to its diversity, but Carol Crane employs a two-tiered approach and produces a seamless sampling of the state's culture and wildlife. Each letter of the alphabet is represented by a rhyme for younger readers: T is for Tundra, a treeless arctic plain. Short warm summers, in winter, a frozen terrain. On the same page, older students can read the sidebar text to gain a richer understanding of the same topic.
