The UP ABCs is Upper Michigan’s only ABC book. It came to be after my daughter was born in 2010. She received several ABC books about Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin as gifts. They weren’t very informed and appeared to have been written by people who had never visited those states.So I set out to find a good ABC book about Michigan, hoping to find one specifically about the Upper Peninsula. When I couldn’t find one, I decided to write and illustrate one myself. I completed the book in December 2011 and it is now available for purchase. My publisher is otsapress of Minnetonka, MN and my printing company is Globe Printing of Ishpeming, MI.The book includes things from all fifteen UP counties and integrates many of the great things about the area, creating a familiar feeling for those of us from here, and introducing the UP to those who don’t know it well.
