The seventh title in the See My State series, T is for Texas combines vibrant photos with fun and informative couplets that elaborate on the pictures and offer clear picture/word associations. The couplets were written by kids, for kids, and are therefore very accessible and entertaining to read and learn from. Combines photographs with couplets written for each letter of the alphabet sharing important state landmarks, people, resources, nature, and more. Facts in the back of the book make it an effective educational tool. The imagery also leaves a lasting impression in each child’s mind as they learn about what makes their state so beautiful and unique. At the back of the book, two pages of intriguing facts add to the learning experience.
