New Regional Children’s Book Review

. April 1, 2014.

Our great state has been featured on bookshelves both locally and across the country. The Twelve Months of Michigan by AnnieMarie E. Chiaverilla is enticing to everyone who lives in Michigan and is a real delight to kids who want to learn more about the state. This hometown story is told through the eyes of a family of mice, with AnnieMarie Mouse as the tour guide, and Pirate Paul and Ana Mae Mouse as drivers. Readers can enjoy going on a journey with the Mouseketeers from their home in West Bloomfield to vacation spots like Mackinac Island and Port Crescent. Mentions are made of special traditions and activities including Michigan sports teams, the Motown sound and the Woodward Dream Cruise. For kids it is a great way to learn about all that our state has to offer and just may prompt parents to take on a road trip
