A Newfoundland Alphabet by Dawn Baker

A Newfoundland AlphabetA Newfoundland Alphabet, written and illustrated by Dawn Baker, is a simple alphabet book with beautiful pictures.  Each page features just one letter of the alphabet with a word or two, or three, that starts with the letter, and each word is illustrated somehow on the page. Many of these words and illustrations have a distinct Newfoundland appeal.

Anna seemed to enjoy the simpleness of this book, even though the words and pictures for a few of the letters weren't as simple as they probably could have been.

This is the third Newfoundland flavoured Alphabet that I've featured on the blog, the first being The Newfoundland and Labrador ABC Book by Dale Ryan and the second being P is for Puffin by Janet Skirving.  Each of these books has it's own appeal and will appeal to different people.  I would say that A Newfoundland Alphabet is the simplest one and probably best for the youngest children, while Ryan's book would be for those a little older and Skirving's would be for those older still.
