Celebrated Halifax artist Yolanda Poplawska has created twenty-six distinctly Haligonian scenes to accompany the letters of the alphabet, from A for anchor to Z for zonked!
Children will be enchanted by Poplawska’s colourful and contemporary illustrations, which depict locales such as the gazebo at the Public Gardens, the lighthouse at McNabs’ Island, buskers juggling on the watefront, rowing on Lake Banook, and many, many more. Words chosen are common nouns, verbs, and adjectives.
This hardy board book edition extends the audience to toddlers and preschoolers. (Nimbus Publishing website 2017)
