It’s never too early to start teaching Texas pride. A is for Alamo, of course, and armadillo, too. Then follow the trail through the alphabet, and you’ll discover just what makes this state so great: from bluebonnets, Big Bend and barbecue to NASA, cowboy stew, and so many more of the trappings and traditions that celebrate the deep heart of Texas. Energetic illustrations bring the letters to life, and rollicking rhymes highlight the fun from A to Z. You’ll have a smile that stretches from the Panhandle to the Piney Woods as your little cowpoke learns letter and verse why there really is no place like home.
