What did you like about the book? This book is a wonderful introduction to the alphabet.  Each letter is represented by a wild animal, from the familiar Bear, Frog, and Turtle to the less well-known Newt, Orca, and Vole.  The color palette is a standout in beachy tones of blue, green, orange and yellow.  A nice surprise is the letter “Y” which is represented by the word “You” and a smiling baby.  This is sure to be a favorite.
