Praise & Kudos

Read what others are saying about Sleeping Bear Press:

Ajhar tracks the development of this Common Core–friendly reading preference in comical scenes in which schoolmarmish Lou [No Pirates Allowed Said Library Lou] dances balletically among piles of books as the exaggeratedly humongous pirate grows more and more absorbed in his reading.
—Kirkus Reviews
 
The Discover America State by State series educates children with enough originality and intelligence to keep parents and teachers on their toes as well.
—Pam Pulner (Amazon.com Reviewer)
 
This excellent picture book [G is for Golden: A California Alphabet] is packed with information.
—San Francisco Chronicle
 
If kids age 6-10 don't know baseball when they begin [H is for Home Run], they'll be experts by the time they finish.
—Chicago Sun-Times
 
When I was a young boy my history book looked like it was 1,000 pages long and a tough read. Here's a kid's book [D is for Democracy] even an adult can read, enjoy, and learn from, that actually explains democracy so simply and effectively, you mean it when you shout out, 'What a country!'
—Regis Philbin
 
As a former school librarian and school librarian of the year for the state of North Carolina, I heartily endorse this book [D is for Democracy]. Not only does it explain our government in simple terms for young children, it also contains excellent facts and ideas for older children that they can use in research or other projects. The illustrations are also wonderful. This book (in multiple copies) should be in every school library in the country!
—Vicki Stanfield, Moravian Book and Gift Shop
 
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)
 
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)
 
...Brad Herzog hits a grand slam. He reaches beyond the obvious ... to enrich [H is for Home Run] with details about the sport's history, rules and heroes.
—Judy Green, Sacramento Bee
 
Roland & Marie Smith's Z is for Zookeeper highlights the ABC's of zoo-life through a sneak-peak into the animal kingdom.
