Last month when I visited Giles County they gave me SMILES OF GILES - A COUNTY ALPHABET BOOK.

This precious book was created by Giles Early Education Project and illustrated by the children from Giles County, VA.



For each letter there is artwork by the children, as well as a photograph. What an amazing way to nurture a sense of community pride in children, teach letters, and make them more knowledgeable about the place they live!

Wouldn't this be a great project for any town, city, county, or state? I bet you could get a grant for publishing this book, or perhaps the chamber of commerce or visitor's center in your area would be interested.


I thought the last page was the best. "May the music of Giles play all your life long."
