Colorado Creatures is an alphabet book about animals that live in Colorado. There are beautiful illustrations that show the animals as the letters of the alphabet. There is prose to go along with each animal as well as music. The CD that is included in each book has music that was beautifully written by a Colorado native and sung by young adults in the Arvada area.


Visit the music page in the bookstore to download the soundtrack.
