Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Come to Swan Harbor and discover acrobatic dragonflies, ancient lobsters, and sweet-smelling sea roses. Travel through the seasons to count baby robins as they wait for their springtime dinner and monarch butterflies as they rest during their autumn journey south. Young children will delight in counting the familiar and not-so-familiar flora and fauna of Swan Harbor, while older children will add to their store of intriguing nature facts. Laura Rankin's own Maine countryside provided the inspiration and research for this beautiful fictional harbor. At once a nature guide, a counting book, and a puzzle, Swan Harbor is first and foremost an exquisite work of art. Laura Rankin, the creator of the award-winning The Handmade Alphabet, lives in York Harbor, Maine.

Synopsis:

Inspired by her Deaf stepson, Rankin created this alphabet book, which celebrates the expressiveness of sign with lyrical clarity and creativity. Each illustration is imaginatively linked to a word that begins with a corresponding letter of the written alphabet. The art is eloquent and elegant, and the hands are all different - male and female, large and small. This softcover edition replaces the hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

"Originally published in hardcover by Dial Books"--T.p. verso.
