M is for Mayflower is a wonderful addition to our series of state alphabet books, as Raven’s sparkling verse and illuminating expository text are matched perfectly with Jeannie Brett’s bright illustrations. This pictorial celebrates the treasures of the Bay State, and educates as it entertains elementary-aged New Englanders. Older readers will appreciate the guided tour through Massachusetts’ history, and will learn more about their unique home. Where else could you find John F. Kennedy, Emily Dickinson, and Walden’s Henry David Thoreau sharing the spotlight with Roxbury Puddingstones and the Quabbin Reservoir? Only in M is for Mayflower.
