I love this book.  It is fun and cool and interesting.  “Heart of Texas: A Lone Star ABC” is a book about places in Texas and I live in Texas.

There are many letters that I like in the book — like letter K that talks about John F. Kennedy and the Kennedy Memorial.  Or the letter C that is about the CowgirlMuseum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth.  There is also the letter E for Enchanted Rock and I have been there several times!

There is a lot of reading.  It’s almost like a chapter book with many little words that are hard to read.  I do like the art work; it looks like it is painted.  I like the bright colors and the people.  In the back of the book is a map of Texas showing where each of the ABC’s are located.

I am still reading it and I keep finding other letters that I like.  I’d like to take a vacation to X for the Texas State Fair.  I love “Heart of Texas: A Lone Star ABC” by Laura Krauss Melmed.
