Like Viano's PNW-bestselling S IS FOR SALMON, this is a beautiful alphabet book featuring papercut art representing natural elements. The flora, fauna, and geological features in this book are found throughout North America, so readers around the country will connect with Viano's gorgeous art and poetic/scientific text.
Examples of the accessible but beautiful alphabet: A is for Acorn, B is for Bear, C is for Cloud, D is for Dandelion, E is for Egret, F is for Fawn. . . all original and stunning artwork for that will appeal to children and adults
PRAISE FOR S IS FOR SALMON
S is for Salmon is a striking, elegant alphabet book for families in the Pacific Northwest (and beyond) that expands young readers' vocabularies and tickles the fancy of parents reading along.
Viano's compositions convey our region's flora, fauna and geography with pleasing simplicity and her written definitions are a nice combination of natural history and whimsy.
The Bellingham Herald
Author and illustrator Hannah Viano's S Is For Salmon is not your typical ABC book. It is fresh, the artwork is excellent and every kiddo practicing their ABCs should have a copy of this beautiful book.
Portland Book Review
There are plenty of alphabet books out there--so many that you can afford to be pretty picky when choosing which titles to check out from the library or purchase and add to your child's personal home collection. . . recently I came across a stunning and unique new alphabet book, Hannah Viano's S is for Salmon: A Pacific Northwest Alphabet from Sasquatch Books; this is one I can't stop looking at, and it's become a new favorite of mine.
. . . a gorgeously crafted, hardcover alphabet book that showcases natural elements like humpback whales, and bald eagles with [Hannah Viano's] vibrant, handcrafted illustrations.
