Trivia to Know About Alphabet Boats

  • Are there any details of Alphabet Boats that you particularly love that readers should watch for?

    In every illustration in each of Alphabet Trucks, Alphabet Trains, and Alphabet Boats, the illustrator Ryan O’Rourke incorporated upper and lowercase letters for children to discover. I absolutely love studying the pages for hidden letters. I hope children have fun spotting and identifying the letters.
