The Butterfly Alphabet by Kjell B Sandved

I just added a new ABC book to my collection. If you have a butterfly lover, consider The Butterfly Alphabet by Kjell B Sandved, which was published in 1996. This beautiful book contains full color pictures of close-ups of butterfly wings that contain letters of the alphabet.

In the back of the book the author has included facts on butterflies and a biography of each of the twenty-six featured butterflies and moths.

Each page has a poem with a word featuring the letter.

"On wings aloft across the skies - An alphabet of butterflies."

"Each butterfly in secret brings a letter hidden in its wings."

"The rainbow gave to butterflies spots of color just their size."

"They dance among the forest lights like floating flower petal sprites."

"Each lifted by a gentle breeze, they soar above with simple ease."

I love butterflies and poetry, so this is a great book to add to my collection.

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.

Read to a child today even if that child is you.
