Welcome to Arizona

2021

by Asa Gilland

"Welcome to Arizona! We’re glad you’re here! Introducing a new series of picture books about each US state. Children from Arizona and those who’d like to visit Arizona one day will love this bright, cheerful, fact-filled picture book celebration of “The Grand Canyon State.” With information about the state’s animals, plants, regions, food, people, customs, and fun places to visit, this tribute to Arizona is the perfect gift for vacationers and residents alike. The warm, bright illustrations highlight the many delights to be found throughout the state, and the easy-yet-informative details (“Arizona’s state mammal, the ringtailed cat, is not a cat! It is a member of the racoon family”) give just the right amount of information to kids from preschool on up. Series Overview: The “Welcome to” series starts in spring ’21 with Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas, with plans to add more states each season." -- publisher

2013

by Nancy Bo Flood

"Rodeo riders are honored athletes--skilled, smart, and tough. It takes brains, muscles, and a lot of practice to wrestle a racing steer to the ground or stay on top of a bucking, twisting bronco. Rodeo is the number-one most exciting sport out West. Not so sure? Take a look"-- Provided by publisher
