A Prairie Alphabet

by Jo Bannatyne-cugnet
Illustrator Yvette Moore

Tundra | March 26, 1999 | Hardcover |

Not yet rated | write a review
When most people think of the prairies, they picture endless flat plains, miles of farms with grain waving in the wind, gentle, undulating hills, and vast cattle ranches. But to the people who live there, particularly the children, the prairies are much more.

A Prairie Alphabet offers the adult and child alike a remarkable tour - from the grain elevators that are an integral part of the landscape, to oil rigs that pop up like "grasshoppers," to fairs and rodeos, to auctions, barns, combines, and dugouts.

From the Jacket

"Superlative.…Moore's intricate, realistic style - calling to mind a cross between Andrew Wyeth and Norman Rockwell - lets readers appreciate details usually found only in a photograph."
-Publisher's Weekly (starred review)

From Our Editors

A prairie alphabet book for kids, each painting is a work of art. Alliterative captions sum up each scene and children are encouraged to search out additional objects beginning with the same letter. Notes at the back provide extra help for anyone who doesn't know an Aberdeen Angus from a Hereford.
