G is for Garden State
A New Jersey Alphabet book by Eileen Cameron
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. Readers will be delighted to discover the many wonders of the Garden State, from her famous sons and daughters (inventor Thomas Edison and the Revolutionary War heroine Molly Pitcher) to her beautiful sights (the Highlands, the Pinelands, and New Jersey's famous shoreline), and her unique institutions (The Seeing Eye training institute for seeing eye dogs and Haddy, the largest complete dinosaur skeleton of its time, found in 1858). Written in the popular two-tier format young readers will explore state facts through colorful illustrations and rhyming verses.
