My Mitten: Super Bookworm
I really like this book because it has all of the main points about Michigan in one book. It talks about Michigan's state bird (the robin), state flower (apple blossom), and even has an online code so that you can learn more about Michigan.
Bluffton: my summers with Buster by Matt Phelan
This book is about Michigan
Detroit turns 313 this year! The city was founded on July 24, 1701 by the French explorer Antoine Laumet de Lamothe Cadillac. Originally named Fort Pontchartrain du Detroit, its name was shortened by the British after they had gained control of the settlement during the French and Indian War. The city is known throughout the world as both an automotive center and the birthplace of some of the world's best known musical talent. Several nicknames have been attached to Detroit throughout its long history: Motown, Hockeytown, the Motor City, the City of Champions, and the Arsenal of Democracy all reflect the city's acheivements. Although the city has undergone some tough times in recent years, Detroit can be proud of its contributions to both the country - and the world. For a taste of the city's history, as well as a picture of its present, check out some of the titles below:
