Published: J. Paul Getty Museum - April 1st, 2007

Photographs from 1852 to 1991 (from all over the world) show different people, places, animals and things to show an unique take on the classic alphabet book. These wonderful black and white photographs are the perfect way of showing the alphabet. Continue the fun with little snippets of information about each photograph at the end. While great for the classroom, or a little one learning the alphabet, this is a fantastic gift for an adult who loves photography, who collects alphabet books or just the gift for the person who has everything. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

By Kes Gray, Mary McQuillan (Illustrator)
ISBN: 9780805074543
Availability: Special Order
Published: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR) - October 1st, 2003

Twitchy looks different from his mom and dad. And when he realizes why this is and learns about his how his “Bunny Mom and Dad” loved him, but could not keep him, he runs away from home thinking his parents could never love him since he does look so different from them. But what he learns makes this a sweet story about a special bunny and his “real” parents. A tale that shows that families love you just the way you are--no matter what you look like. The illustrations help move the story along, and are just as wonderful as the text. While a book about adoption, this is a story that can be read to any child. It is a must have for your collection. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Published: Piggy Toes Press - January 10th, 2020

This starts out as a fabulous counting book. By the end of the story it is so much more. There are colors and something to see on every page. My nephews loved this book. They'd sit for hours counting not only the ladybugs but the other items on the page as well. Great for all ages up to age five. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
