Legacy Projects > Blossom and the BISONtennial Book Blossom and the BISONtennial Book

Blossom and the BISONtennial is a book that will illustrate some basic facts of Indiana at a level that young children will enjoy and understand. It ties together reading from our early childhood initiative and the Bison which will be in our county. Additionally, all kindergarten and preschool students will receive their own copy of the book.
