Everyone loves alphabet books – and animals! “Journey with us through the alphabet, imagine, create as you go . . .” Ramey’s poetry and Tadlock’s illustrations are a winning combination as you follow a young girl’s imagination and her dragonfly through the alphabet. As each animal is poetically changed, her dragonfly appears in each scene – from hopping with Katie – Katie the Kanga is what she’s called, when she hops she looks like she’s flying, So before she gets too far away, I’ll change her to a . . Lion – to landing on Lucinda Lion’s tale.
The book has beautifully detailed black and white line art illustrations. A CD of individual PDF files of the animals, in a simplified version, ready to color, accompanies the book. Children can then create their own Animal Alphabet story, poem, rap, or song.
