A Is for Anemone : A First West Coast Alphabet

A Is for Anemone: A First West Coast Alphabet

$14.95


With crisp, luminous illustrations by celebrated Indigenous artist Roy Henry Vickers, and a simple rhythmic text, this sturdy board book introduces the alphabet using iconic imagery of the West Coast, creating a book that will be cherished by young readers and their families.

Starting with colourful sea anemones waving in the ocean current, and closing with a snoozing grizzly bear (Zzz), this board book supports both early literacy and children's awareness of the natural world.

Publishers Weekly described Vickers' previous collaboration with Robert Budd as a gorgeous glimpse of the distinctive landscapes and creatures of the Northwest, [that] will enchant residents and nonlocals alike.”


 

"A Is for Anemone is a tactile knockout... the art literally stands out—every page includes a softly embossed feature that often can't be seen until children run their fingers over the page. The texture is in the tentacles of jellyfish, the lines of pouring rain and a bird that is almost invisible to the eye... it's a touch sensation."
