E is for excellent! Finally an alphabet book for nature lovers and dedicated “to all of those who let children run a little wild.” Each letter of the alphabet is depicted with things found in nature from A is for acorn to Z for catching some “Zzzs” in an outdoor hammock. Viano’s Pacific Northwest roots are revealed in her choice of images. A fun fact about each image can be found at the bottom of the page. The inclusion of K for kids is a welcome invitation to young readers. Viano’s captivating illustrations are intricate cuttings from black paper which have been digitally enhanced. With each page framed in black, the overall appearance is art deco au natural. B is for Bear is an eye-catching book that will bring out the wild in your child.
