1 Hour : Read It : Alphabet Series

image via

Sleeping Bear Press has published an excellent series of non-fiction picture books that appeal to both my oldest son and my younger children. The series includes a book for every U.S. state, every popular sport, many cultures, and even educational topics. A few of our favorites include:
N is for Our Nation's Capital (A Washington DC Alphabet)
R is for Rhyme (A Poetry Alphabet)
P is for Putt (A Golf Alphabet)
P is for Passport (A World Alphabet)

Each book feature beautiful illustrations, a rhyme for the letter and word on that page, and a detailed sidebar that provides additional information. I can't say enough about these books. They challenge 10-year-olds with new concepts; they are accessible for young readers who are learning basics of a topic.

Find a complete list of titles at Sleeping Bear Press. Also, a list of the state books is available here. Books are available for purchase at Amazon and Barnes & Noble

(Note: I classified this book as a 1 hour activity because my kids ask so many questions while we read that it takes that long to read an entire A to Z book.)
