About the Author:

Marie and Roland Smith have collaborated on several alphabet titles, including B is for Beaver: An Oregon Alphabet and Z is for Zookeeper: A Zoo Alphabet. They live on a small farm south of Portland. The author of many books for children, Roland has also penned Sleeping Bear Press's middle-grade series, I, Q.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4–Each letter of the alphabet represents a person, place, or event associated with our nation's capital. A four-line verse or quatrain introduces it, accompanied by a sidebar of more historical information and sometimes more people, places, or events that go with the letter. The lush watercolor illustrations expand on the text. The title is similar in style and format to Devin Scillian's A Is for America: An American Alphabet (2001) and Elissa Grodin's D Is for Democracy: A Citizen's Alphabet (2004, both Sleeping Bear). However, the P page is inaccurate. The Powhatan Indians did not live along the Potomac River as stated. The Piscataway Indians lived there and had a different history.–Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
