Good story, though I tended to paraphrase when reading to my kindergarten class, as they would have lost interest before I read it all. The pictures were great and helped me to remember a lot of the main points I wanted to tell them about Alaska, however, so I was satisfied.

We love this series of books. L for the Last Frontier is going to be used in our Alaska state study at the beginning of next year.
Jugore
Love it! We learned a lot, and the paintings were beautiful.

We bought a number of books in this series - the Alaska one (where daddy grew up and where grandma and grandpa live), the Colorado one (same thing for mommy's side) and the Washington one (where we live now). We love them all and even though they are probably aimed at kids just above my son's age, he still requests them a lot and we talk about the places we have been in the books. I highly recommend them and use them as gifts quite often.

Love these books.

Great illustrations, well written, educational and entertaining.
I would recommend this book to all elementary school teachers for their classroom library.

Book is comparable to the other alphabet state books. Just returned from a month in Alaska and this book is perfect for summarizing my trip.
This gave us a lot of great jumping off points for our study of Alaska. Grabbed my kids interest and the illustrations were awesome. We have used the Alabama book too. I wish we could afford the set.
