This playful and humorous alphabet book inspires learning the ABCs and introduces young children to Alaskan flora, fauna, and culture. Meet a moose in mukluks, a reindeer in the rain, and salmon snowshoeing!
An alphabet book all about Alaska, this read has a fun element of alliteration on almost every page. I felt like this made it a little more substantive than just a picture with the letter and one word starting with the letter, though the illustrations aren’t my favorite.
SHANNON CARTWRIGHT arrived in Alaska in 1972 after graduating from the University of Michigan School of Architecture and Design. She was drawn north by the stories she heard as a child from her grandmother, Esther Schaubel, a famous public-health nurse who spent 15 years in the Alaska bush during the ‘40s and ‘50s.
