The response to this picture book has been overwhelming! If you don’t have your copy yet, let me tell you a little bit about this treasure. Letters in the Woods takes children on a walk through the northern forest to discover the familiar shapes of the alphabet hidden in trees, clouds, water and rocks. Sweet rhymes accompany whimsical watercolour illustrations. Available through Word Alive Press and online, wherever children’s books are sold.
Thank you to the Word Awards for recognizing Letters in the Woods! It’s an amazing honour to be included in the shortlist with so many talented Canadian artists!
