The letters of the alphabet are represented by words, set in short rhymes with additional information, relating to the state of Wisconsin.
Illustrated by: Renee Graef
The intriguing facts and faces, history and places of Wisconsin are revealed to readers young and old in "B is for Badger: A Wisconsin Alphabet." From its leaders in fine arts and architecture (Georgia O'Keefe and Frank Lloyd Wright) to its pioneers in nature conservation (John Muir and Aldo Leopold), Wisconsin has been an influence on major movements in education, industry, and use of natural resources. Brought to life with lyric rhymes and expressive, original artwork, "B is for Badger" showcases for natives and visitors alike the splendors of Wisconsin.

"B is for Badger" is her fourth state alphabet book. She lives with her family in Petoskey, Michigan.
