A Peaceable Kingdom: The Shaker Abecedariusby Alice Provensen (Illustrator), Martin Provensen
An incongruous menagerie of more than one hundred real and imagined animals romp through the pages of this irresistible alphabet book based on the Shaker Abecedarius. The rhythmic listing of animal names (Alligator, Beetle, Porcupine, Whale) begs to be read aloud while propelling both reader and listener alike into a delight of syllables. Beautiful paintings by noted illustrators Alice and Martin Provensen perfectly re-create the Shakers' joy in childhood.
