The Alphabet Forest by Lori Galaske

In this charming and adorable book for preschoolers, a young girl has lost her name. Her brother agrees to help her find it and their journey takes them through their house and yard and into a wonderful alphabet forest where trees, birds, and animals of every letter play along the path.

The Alphabet Forest by Lori Galaske is such a sweet story. Galaske’s adventurous tale is filled with alliteration that helps children learning to read recognize recurring letter sounds.  I’m already a fan of Eugene Ruble’s artwork and he did a fine job with bringing The Alphabet Forest alive for readers with excellent use of color and details. I’ll be sharing this one with my friends who have preschoolers.

New Arrival: The Runaway Dandelion by Jill Regensburg

A once idyllic meadow, home to animals, birds, insects, wildflowers and ancient apple trees is clear cut by a bulldozer to make way for new construction.

Miraculously, there is one survivor…a lonely little dandelion.

When her golden petals turn to white fluff, she takes flight in search of a new home. We get a bird’s eye view of her journey over many big houses and manicured green lawns. When she spots a lush green meadow, surrounded by wetlands, we follow her down to earth, and cheer as she puts down new roots.

We meet all the inhabitants of this small Family Farm and observe their daily life.
