Read what others are saying about Sleeping Bear Press:

P is for Putt and G is for golf and also for my grandson, my first, and this will be in his hands soon, because we all know T is for Tiger and hope springs eternal.
—Leonard Shapiro, Washington Post
 
If each of Sleeping Bear Press' alphabet books is as vivid and enticing as C is for Cowboy: A Wyoming Alphabet, the entire collection should be in every library in America! This is a unique and wonderful children's book captures the spirit and beauty of Wyoming's intriguing history with western humor, cowboy poetry, and tales of heroes past and present, better than any travel brochure, let alone history book.
—Harper Park (2004-2005 Distinguished Elementary Principal)
 
What a great way to introduce and practice the alphabet with children. This book [T is for Teachers] is filled with interesting facts for each letter that are sure to engage all readers...young and old. The bright illustrations and splendid rhymes create a book that is a true joy to read.
—Donna Whyte (Author, Teacher, Education Consultant)
 
Z is for Zeitgeist?' I always check the z entry of an alphabet book first, and was I surprised when I looked at the last letter in D is for Democracy! The use of the term 'zeitgeist' puts a brilliant cap on this look at the fundamental rights and responsibilities of living in a democracy. Yes, it's an ABC book, but one with a solid commitment to democratic ideals and the belief that, as stated in 'Q is for Questions' that 'Taking part in a democracy is every citizen's task.'
—Walter Mayes (Author of Valerie & Walter's Best Books for Children)
 
An exquisite must-have book for the holiday season...[Winter's Gift]

—Jack Hanna (Director Emeritus Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Hosts TV's Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures)
 
George Gipp's spirit is everywhere in this game and this book chronicles that spirit so well. Win One for the Gipper: America's Football Hero is a timeless book for kids everywhere.
—Ara Parseghian (Legendary Notre Dame Football Coach)
 
M is for Mitten: A Michigan Alphabet is one of my Michigan favorites. It's a creative and imaginative way to teach young children about the wonders of our state. It not only helps them learn the alphabet, but also instills, at an early age, pride in this place we call home. If you are a Michigan native, or if you have never visited our state, M is for Mitten will give you a sense of joy and awe about the Great Lakes state.
—Jennifer Granholm (Michigan Governor)
 
As First Lady of Colorado, I have been privileged to travel the state visiting schools and reading to children. Last year when the book C is for Centennial: A Colorado Alphabet was published, I was thrilled to bring it to Colorado's children. Thanks to the author Louise Doak Whitney and illustrator Helle Urban, I now have an incredible depiction of Colorado's beauty to present to our schools. Through the pages of this book our school children have been able to celebrate Colorado, its history and splendor.
—Francis Owens (Colorado's First Lady)
 
Brad Herzog hits a high hard one right out of the park with this smartly arranged and beautifully illustrated alphabet book [H is for Home Run] that pays tribute to the national pastime.
