The Alphabet Tree by Leo Lionni

THE ALPHABET TREE
By Leo Lionni

Letters cling to leaves and hop from twig to twig in Leo Lionniís classic picture book, THE ALPHABET TREE (Alfred A. Knopf / on sale June 8, 2004 / $15.95). Literacy and reading fundamentals truly come to life with Lionniís snappy text and gorgeous illustrations!

The letters on the alphabet tree are thrown astray when a strong wind removes them from their solitary life on each leaf. Luckily the word-bug is there to show the letters how much stronger they can be together, as clinging to each other makes them words! Next, a feisty purple caterpillar appears and teaches the words that to become even stronger, all they need to do is form sentences, and amazingly those sentences can create wonderful statements of peace.

Absolutely perfect for beginning readers and classroom use, THE ALPHABET TREE is available for the first time in many years as a beautiful hardcover book. Children will enjoy Lionniís play with words and his luscious painterly illustrations.

Leo Lionni was born in Holland, studied in Italy, and came to the United States in 1939. His beloved picture books include four Caldecott Honor Books: Inch by Inch, Frederick, Swimmy, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. Lionni passed away in 1999 at the age of 89.

I just ordered this for Ethan (3 yrs. old). I can't wait 'till it comes! Amazon.com has free shipping if you order $25 worth, so I also ordered THE SCRAMBLED STATES OF AMERICA, that looks like fun, yet educational, and PIRATE PETE . Ethan's been fascinated with priates lately, so I guess I'll go with the flow. Thanks for the suggestion!

Great Book

Ethan loves THE ALPHABET TREE! We're talking about making an alphabet tree. Maybe making a trunk out of felt, then cut out some leaves and put letters on them with a permanent marker - kind-of a flannel board type thing.

Also, the SCRAMBLED STATES OF AMERICA is great! He's 3, and he has learned the names and locations of over half the states!
