I am absolutely in love with a collection of children’s books by Home Grown Books. I just got “An Alphabet in Bloom,” and I have to say, it’s exceptionally beautiful and creative – I’ve never seen anything like it.
It’s a wordless picture book that has the potential to capture the minds of kids in all age groups. (I even caught myself flipping through the pages in awe). Each page contains colorful artwork by Nathalie Trovato, and captures the essence of the alphabet in a very creative way. The first page is dedicated to nature images that begin with the letter “A,” and it’s up to the child to point out and take note of each item on the page and the letter it begins with. The letter is not visually displayed on each page; therefore, the child is pushed to learn the alphabet on his or her own with the help of eye-catching imagery. I can’t say enough good things about this collection of books.
My daughter is 10 months old, and although she isn’t at the alphabet-learning stage, she gravitates to the colorful pages. I look forward to teaching her the alphabet with the help of this book in the near future.
I highly recommend these books as upcoming holiday and birthday gifts. The gift of learning is the best gift, in my opinion.
Alphabet in Bloom retails for $17.95
