"Michigan Baby, I love you so much. My love for you is longer than the Mackinac Bridge and taller than a lighthouse. My love for you is brighter than the city lights and as peaceful as a day in our Michigan forests." And so it reads in this adorable book about all things Michigan. Cuddly and warm illustrations capture the joy and excitement of being a baby in the Great Lakes State, and the loving text and sweet verses make I Love You, Michigan Baby a love letter to all of Michigan's newborns and tiny visitors alike.
