As I’ve been on a quest for art books recently, I discovered along the way a few alphabet books rich in artistry, clever perspectives, delightful antics, and non-electronic play. Not much commentary here — I’ll leave it to you to discover the pleasures in each volume!
There are seemingly innumerable alphabet books out there. I chose this one…
I love that dedication for B is for Bear! I take my son outside a lot, but it’s usually just to the playground. And it takes some real effort to resist my initial reaction to keep him out of puddles and dirt and such. We only just started venturing past the playground (or walking on the road through the park) and onto the nature trail and he is LOVING it. I still don’t love the mess, but it is worth it. Once we’ve both a little dirty or wet, it’s sort of like, oh well, what’s a bit more? Sure we can stay out in the rain. Haha — thanks for sharing 🙂
I love the dedication, too! Yay for puddle-stomping! Way to get your son outdoors, Christine!
