An Edible Alphabet by Carol Watterson

If you're a city dweller, why not take your young one on a tour of a working farm where they can learn about the animals and plants grown there?

Tricycle Press has published this children's picture book and sent me a copy for review.  Michela Sorrentino is the illustrator, and her drawings make the animals leap from the pages.  You can get a copy of this book at your local bookstore now.

This is a unique look at the alphabet.  Each letter has an animal or a plant highlighted and the use of alliteration makes the reading fun!  Besides introducing a child to country living on a farm, they will also learn animal facts and farm lore.

This is a great educational book presented in a fun way.  Why not share a copy with those you love?

Happy reading.

Great book! Both fun to read and informative, really informative! Fantastic illustrations, too. Enjoyed equally by my 6 and 9 year olds, and myself! Entertaining and an excellent source of information on food and agriculture.
