The Ozarks Mountaineer: “…this fascinating children’s book…is chock full of Missouri tidbits…an outstanding resource for any Missourian, as well as educators.”

417 Magazine: “Children’s poet Judy Young was a Springfield-area resident whe she and her husband created this alphabet book… which assigns every letter of the alphabet a little bit of Missouri flair. D is for dogwood, B is for Big Spring. It’s a fun way to learn the ABCs with a little local pride woven in.”
