A is for America: An American Alphabet
Devin Scillian
Illustrated by Pam Carroll
Non-Fiction Picture Book
Ages 4 to 7
Sleeping Bear Press, 2001, 1-58536-015-5.
  In this unique alphabet book Devin Scillian has found a format that makes the story of the United States exciting. He uses the letters of the alphabet to describe many of the different aspects of American life and history. Each letter has several words associated with it. For example F is for fireworks, flags, and "Fifty fine state capitals in fifty United States." These words are explained both in rhyming poetry on part of the page and in more detail in a border of each double page spread. Pam Carroll's full-color paintings complement and add to the tone of each page. "A is for America: An American Alphabet" is a wonderful introduction to the history and culture of America.
