"As First Lady of Colorado, I have been privileged to travel the state visiting schools and reading to children. Last year when the book C is for Centennial: A Colorado Alphabet was published, I was thrilled to bring it to Colorado's children. Thanks to the author Louise Doak Whitney and illustrator Helle Urban, I now have an incredible depiction of Colorado's beauty to present to our schools. Through the pages of this book our school children have been able to celebrate Colorado, its history and splendor."
