The second title in our already popular provincial alphabet series, A is for Algonquin Park: An Ontario Alphabet introduces young readers to all the beauty of this spectacular province. Written with the charm and knowledge of a life long resident, A is for Algonquin Park teaches youngsters of all ages about Ontario's inhabitants, history, flora and fauna, movers and shakers. As with our other two-tiered alphabet books, A is for Algonquin Park answers a variety of questions about one of Canada's most picturesque provinces. Is the longest street in the world really in Ontario? And the world's longest skating rink? What is the Group of Seven? A is for Algonquin Park is Lovenia Gorman's first book. She lives in Toronto, Ontario. Melanie Rose has illustrated six other titles for Sleeping Bear. She lives near Toronto, Ontario.
