Arizona Way Out West & Witty: Library Edition's target audience is grade-school children; yet, it is as appealing to adults as it is to kids! Highlights of Arizona's history are punctuated with true but gross, humorous, interesting and witty stories and facts about the Grand Canyon State. In addition to all the important stuff about Arizona, readers learn: What Geronimo and yawning have in common, What a glass eye has to do with Phoenix being Arizona's state capital, How many teachers it would take standing head-to-toe to go from the bottom to the top of the Grand Canyon and much, much more! But it takes more than amusing writing and fascinating facts to keep children's attention, so AZWOWW's award-winning creative team added recipes, crafts, games and science to the mix. Arizona Way Out West & Witty: Librarian Edition's activities do not tempt children to write or mark in the book -- there are no coloring pages or fill-in-the-blanks. This library edition, which was designated an official Arizona Centennial Legacy Project by the Arizona Historical Advisory Commission includes a complete curriculum kit. Winner of ONEBOOKAZ for Kids 2012.
