From armadillo to zebra, this enchanting picture book pairs the stunning photography of National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore with playful poems by New York Times best-selling author Debbie Levy to represent the letters of the alphabet and celebrate the diversity of the animal world.
This unique alphabet book is a dazzling journey through the animal kingdom. It invites children and their families to linger over Sartore's spectacular portraits of animals both familiar and little known, to look these incredible creatures in the eye and marvel at their shape, form, and expression. Each animal is showcased in an original poem by Levy, whose clever, quirky verse and exuberant wordplay will delight readers young and old. The photos are part of Sartore's mission to photograph all the animal species in human care, with special attention given to rare and endangered species.
A beautiful gift book for animal lovers of any age, and a very special read-aloud ABC book for young children.
