C is for Chinook: An Alberta Alphabet. Readers young and old can trek the Rocky Mountains, canoe across beautiful Lake Louise, and still have energy to visit capital city Edmonton for an Oilers game. From Big Horn Sheep to renowned doctor, Mary Percy Jackson, author Dawn Welykochy recounts the facts, faces, and features that make Alberta unique.Dawn Welykochy grew up in Calgary, Alberta; attended the University of Calgary; and recently completed training to become a Montessori preschool teacher. C is for Chinook is her first children's book. Dawn now lives on a ranch in Southern Alberta and looks forward to traveling the province to share this book with children and educators. Lorna Bennett attended Grant MacEwan Community College and the University of Alberta in the Arts/Fine Arts program. She has worked as a ski instructor, designer, writer, illustrator, and animator. Her previous children's picture books include Sandwiches for Duke and Dot to Dot in the Sky.
