From harbors and islands to deer and moose, Dahlov Ipcar's Maine Alphabet covers her entire home state of Maine, showcasing her bold, striking signature illustrations of wildlife and coastal scenes. This book is near and dear to Ipcar's heart, serving as a kind of love letter to her home state where she has lived and worked for almost 75 years. Her affection for Maine rings true in each letter, from "A is for animals, wild and free," to W, "for woodlands of wonder for you and for me." In the last illustration, which the 94-year-old artist did especially for this edition, she invites young readers to "Walk in my woods and you will see / X, Y and Z high in a tree."
This is the third board book from Ipcar, following Farmyard Alphabet and Wild Animal Alphabet. Maine Alphabet contains illustrations from twelve of Ipcar's previous children's books, most of which are out of print, as well as one original piece. This alphabet book is sure to become a classic, a must-have for any Maine child's bookshelf!
