    S is for Sunshine

    0 5/5 Carolyn Talpasz (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) - See all my reviews This review is from: S is for Sunshine: A Florida Alphabet (Discover America State by State) (Hardcover) S is for Sunshine is not an ordinary alphabet book. It's a unique alphabet book of the Sunshine State...Florida. What makes it unique are not the beautiful, pastel-colored illustrations by Michael Glenn Monroe, but the combination of narrative and expository passages for each letter of the alphabet. The simple, rhyming lines depict a particular characteristic of Florida, for example, A is for alligator. Along the sides of the page is a well-written descriptive passage explaining about the alligator and its habitat. The rhymes and illustrations are especially appealing to the younger child, however, the accompanying passages provide a rich history and facts about Florida for the intermediate reader. What a wonderful book for children! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 13, 2000

    A Great Alphabet Book for Florida lovers

    This is my new favorite alphabet book to read to my 3 year old daughter. We both love looking at all of the pictures of the places we have been to and the items and animals as the relate to the state of Florida. Each page features a letter, a rhyme even small children can follow, and a beautiful picture. There are also sidebars where more in depth information on the pictures is provided for more advanced readers. Our favorites are N for Nasa, S for St Augustine, and of course W for Walt Disney World. I foud the sidebar information okay in content. The letter U is for underwater Aquarium and I thought that maybe some info on the state aquarium in Tampa would have been nice if it was provided but it was not. On the other hand the page for the letter Z for Zebra Longwing butterfly mentioned Butterfly World an attraction that is located just down the street from us. I think the book would have benefited from some more in depth informnation on places you could specifically visit. That said... 5/5 Ariel Pawlak (POMPANO BEACH, FL United States) - See all my reviews, September 12, 2002

    Excellent for children and adults

    0 5/5 teacher123abc - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: S is for Sunshine: A Florida Alphabet (Discover America State by State) (Hardcover) I bought this for my grandchildren, and really enjoyed reading it myself. Each page is in two parts -- the inside 2/3 of each page has words unique to Florida with beautiful illustrations for each letter of the alphabet, written in larger print and in language children can understand. The outside 1/3 of each page has smaller print and goes into detail about the words and pictures, expanding knowledge for curious children and adults. I highly recommend this book! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 7, 2006

    Wierd and wonderful Florida

    It's not hard to find strangeness here.On my drive from the southeast part of Florida to the western shore of St. Pete Beach, I encountered one very odd thing after the next, in a very strange (at least to me) landscape.I'm not used to driving for hours without seeing any buildings, as a native northeasterner, for one thing. But in the vast wilderness of empty pastures that is central Florida, where there are no houses or buildings for hours, was a Wal-Mart, with a full parking lot. My mind went blank.I drove another two hours, seeing no signs of any slightest civilization, and came to---are you ready---a store selling ball gowns, with mannequins modeling them in the front window. I hadn't even seen one other car in hours. I drove another two hours, with no houses or stores or buildings, only cow pastures without cows, very rarely seeing another car, and came to a gas station, where stood---the Refrigerator! And he was signing a boy's autograph, before... 5/5 AKN - See all my reviews, October 14, 2012

    Real Insight From A Florida Insider.

    Most books of this nature reflect a rose-colored tone usually with a hidden marketing campaign or sales pitch between the lines. This book is different, in a good way. The author provides a realistic presentation of Florida living. Bugs and all. Romantic ideals are balanced with true insight.I have vacationed in Florida for many years and have some direct experience with the beautiful side of Florida (palm trees, porpoises, gulf views) and the ugly side (seedy transients, obscene traffic, overcrowding). The author drives home the concept that vacationing and living there are two different worlds. Sometimes the author voices a personal opinion that may be unpopular or politically incorrect. It's these opinions sprinkled throughout that make this book better. It also helps people like me, who are considering a move to Florida, make more informed choices.My only complaint is that the book didn't contain enough information.

    Some good info with an overall negative bias and sloppy execution

    A quick pass by a professional editor would improve this book greatly and enhance the author's credibility. There are some real grammatical and stylistic howlers here.That said, I read with fascination Stack's vivid portrayal of the miseries of a Florida summer that send many packing back north, often at a huge loss. Alligators in your swimming pool. Snakes crawling into your pool cage to get the geckos. Heatstroke-inducing temperatures and humidity if you dare to venture outside at midday,making neighborhoods into ghost towns. Hurricane evacuations uprooting you and forcing you to join an endless exodus of stopped traffic (woe to you if you need gas; every station along the way will be out, and forget about a place to stay if you haven't made a reservation long before evacuating). Power outages in the "lightning capital of the world." Giant cockroaches. And more.The best way to enjoy Florida, according to Stack, is to become a "sixer" - 6 months in Florida... 3/5 Mimijo "MJH" (TN USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
