Comments from the author about writing:
I was reading to my grandchildren and noticed that they loved Dr. Suess books because of the rhythm and rhyme. I thought I could go to the library or bookstore and pick up a book for them that would teach them about Iowa in rhythm and rhyme. When I was unable to find a book like this, I decided that perhaps I should write one. I decided that to get the reader to see each site it would be a great perspective to be a bird who could view the places "from the sky". Since it was an Iowa book, I entitled it, "Iowa from the Sky". The bird for each state book is the state bird. The illustrations are unique because they are actually sites that can only be seen in Iowa (or other states).
