clothbound, 48 pages, 9" x 12"

Majestic and gorgeous picture book for ages 4 – 8. Queen Calafia hears that we have adopted her name for our state and listens to twenty-six animals about why California is worthy of her name. This book is a delightful exploration of what makes California worthy of its regal name as we hear from each animal that characterizes California in a key cultural context or historical event. Large, intricate illustrations display the wealth of research into every subject.
