Adventures in Alaska written by Ron Hirschi and illustrated by Yuko Green
The story is about Sarah and Cole as they visit Alaska with their parents on an adventure to all corners of the 49th state. Sending post cards to their classmates back home in Pickerington.
The story tells about the earlier Alaskan explorers who came to look for gold and also tells about the first Alaskans, native people who share the beauty and wonder of the land of ice an snow; wolves and whales, salmon and towering totems. For those wondering what totems are; they are poles with carvings of eagles, wolves and other animals and puzzle-like designs. It also gives a brief history of the Russian people settling and trading in Alaska in 1799 and many more stories about the State of Alaska.
I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to every parent to read this to their child.
