Welcome to Colorado
by Welcome to
illustrated by Asa Gilland
Welcome to Colorado! Whether they’re locals or visitors, young readers will love this bright, cheerful, fact-filled picture book celebration of “The Centennial State.”
With information about the state’s animals, plants, regions, food, people, customs, and fun places to visit, this tribute to Colorado 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 (“There’s one place in the United States where you can stand in four states at once! The borders of Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico all meet at Four Corners”) give just the right amount of information to kids from preschool on up.
