While alphabet books for children abound , a few are head and shoulders above the rest - C Is For Coyote is one such stand-out. The book does focus on examples found in the southwestern part of our country, yet the information included is so fascinating and the photography so beautiful that it will appeal to youngsters all over America. Each letter of the alphabet is accompanied not only by a first rate full color photo but also by a brief descriptive paragraph. For instance, "B is for Bobcat," which is where readers learn that bobcats live in rocky dens, are solitary, and like to hunt at night. From the title "C is for Coyote" it is revealed that coyotes are "one of the most adaptable animals in the world.....Yip! Yip! Oo-oow! Known for their distinctive howl, some Native Americans call coyotes "songdogs" and interpret their howling to predict the weather." And so it goes through "P is for Pueblo," which is Spanish for town, all the way to "Z is for Zion," one of our most outstanding National Parks. What a treat to find a book that doesn't "talk down" to children, but entertains and educates.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
