The Alphabet Tree

The Alphabet Tree Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Illus. in full color. The letters on an alphabet tree, torn and tossed by the wind, find strength in banding together to form words. Then a clever caterpillar teaches the letters to become even stronger by forming sentences with a message of peace in a gentle parable about the power of the written word.  

Synopsis:

When a fierce wind threatens to blow all the little letters out of the alphabet tree, they must band together in words--and then sentences--to create a message that's even stronger than the wind: peace on earth. With their newfound knowledge, there's nothing the letters "can't "do in this gentle parable about the power of the written word.

About the Author

Leo Lionni, an internationally known designer, illustrator, and graphic artist, was born in Holland and lived in Italy until he came to the United States in 1939. He was the recipient of the 1984 American Institute of Graphic Arts Gold Medal and was honored posthumously in 2007 with the Society of Illustrators’ Lifetime Achievement Award. His picture books are distinguished by their enduring moral themes, graphic simplicity and brilliant use of collage, and include four Caldecott Honor Books: Inch by Inch, Frederick, Swimmy, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. Hailed as “a master of the simple fable” by the Chicago Tribune, he died in 1999 at the age of 89.

From the Hardcover edition.
