January 26, 2013 is Michigan’s Statehood Day, or as the kids will be calling it, Michigan’s 176th birthday. In preparation for our program, I was pulling materials.  Tucked away in the 977s were these ancient books. Usually, I can’t get enough of this kind of material, since every 3rd grader in the state is studying all sorts of Michigan topics like cities, the Great Lakes, and of course, the Mackinac Bridge.  Neither of the above books has circulated much. For today’s kids these are duds.  (The second one was published before the Big Mac was built, which automatically discounts its value).
