Rating: 1- 5 (5 is excellent or a Starred review) 4
Genre: Picture Book
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.
