Vermont is magical, with its sweet treats, sparkling ski slopes, and giant Green Mountains—not to mention the Algonquin natives, Green Mountain Boys, and Zerah Coburn.

The rhymes and text woven through the alphabet teach readers of all ages the many wonders of our 14th state. From your armchair, you can explore Lake Champlain, The Kingdom, and maple sugar houses.


I have cousins scattered throughout the Green Mountain State, and at the time I wrote this book, my sister’s family was living outside Burlington, so I had a wonderful time exploring one of my favorite states and sampling the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors, varieties of maple syrup, and other Vermont highlights.
