Remember the Alamo!
That's what we'll say
To get our state alphabet book underway...
Thus begins Texas Alphabeta whimsical celebration of what makes Texas such a special state...from A to Z!
Through rhymed verse and colorful collages, author and illustrator Laurie Parker presents a delightful alphabetical account of some of the many people, places, and things of which Texans are so proud. Both children and adults will enjoy exploring the state letter by letter through fun-to-read rhymes such as this one for the letter C:
C is for COWBOYS on gridiron and saddle,
COTTON BOWL, CACTUS, COYOTES, and CATTLE.
A tribe called the CADDO gave our state its name,
And there are more C words we Texans can claim…
Like CADILLAC RANCH, CORPUS CHRISTI, CORRAL,
The old CHISHOLM TRAIL and CAMINO REAL.
We've CAVERNS and CANYONS and lovely CLEAR LAKE,
The CHISOS and CHILI and CHICKEN-FRIED STEAK!
Texas Alphabet is a must-have keepsake for all who hold the Lone Star State dear!
