Each letter is photographed in nature and the 4 x 6 photo is on the right hand side of the page. The left hand side has a larger gray letter with a description of the photo typed in black on top. Here's the text for the letter B which accompanies a photo of a partial lily pad.
Do you see the lily pad
It doubles as a boat for bugs
And a bright green letter
There's much more to this alphabet book. After the 26 letters of the alphabet, there is a Facts and Folklore section which provides information about the object photographed for each letter. It might include how animals and people would use the nature object and it provides a bit of history for some objects. Next, the reader can learn about becoming an alphabet hunter and read about collecting your own alphabet. This could be a fun summer project for a family. This could be a great mentor text for your own classroom or school alphabet hunting. Older students could really conduct some interesting research for a Facts and Folklore page.
Nonfiction Monday is being held today at Shelf-Employed, think about stopping by.
This looks like a fun book - and it reminds of this spell-with-flickr app that we've played with:ReplyDelete
