It’s time for Queen Vernita to take another long visit and this time she is visiting Gator Country. While there, Queen Vernita takes readers on an adventurous journey through the plantations of the South, learning how the slaves lived. She gets to hold a baby alligator and she even learns about jazz music and how it came to the south. As the journey continues, the queen spent time learning about paddle boats, Mardi Gras, the French Quarter, a zoo, and many more interesting things that she wants to teach everyone who reads her book. Join Queen Vernita as she teaches an entire year of fun and adventures through this awesome book by Dawn Menge.
I have read several Queen Vernita books and I have been amazed at each one of them because of what kids can learn as they follow the queen on her different journeys. These books are larger than most children’s paperback books - they have a lot more reading in them - but the amount of information in each book is amazing. Living in the south, I especially enjoyed following Queen Vernita around to all of the different places. And I love the illustrations throughout the book. They take on the look of southern charm, yet they are just right to capture the attention of any child. This is one book that you will surely want on your child’s bookshelf, as well as the shelf of every school library. There is just too much valuable information here to pass up purchasing this book.
