From the author of B is for Buckeye: An Ohio Alphabet and Cardinal Numbers: An Ohio Number Book comes yet another reason to enjoy learning about the Buckeye State. In The Ohio Reader Marcia Schonberg expands the lessons from her two previous books and uses a variety of writing forms to showcase the state's history, people, symbols, and lore. Poetry (including a state pledge), word games, and Who Am I? animal riddles attract and engage beginning readers. Prose, biographies, and short stories (including a Civil War chapter story) challenge more advanced readers. With its broad scope and lively writing, The Ohio Reader offers "buckeyes" of all ages an armchair tour of the state and its wonders.
