Welcome to “Try it on Tuesday”. Each Tuesday I “try” something new and review it here:
I am a huge fan of good children’s books. Recently Sleeping Bear Press sent me a gem, a new beautifully illustrated children’s book, “F is for Friendship: A Quilt Alphabet” by Helen L. Wilbur.
The book is a beauty.
One if the things I really love about the book is the amazing illustrations.
Another thing I love about the book is there is almost two books in one. On the pages there is an alphabet letter with a rhyming verse. If reading to a young child, that portion of the book is plenty to read. If reading with an older child or to yourself, there’s another portion of small print to read. This gives more in depth and historical information.
Modern and historical information is depicted. Many different quilt patterns are shown. This is one of my favorites.
I love anything quilt…anything historical…so this book is perfect for
me any child…boy or girl.
The book also does a great of including people of different cultures.
Sleeping Bear Press is known for the great historical and geographical alphabet books….this book is a great addition to their collection…but more importantly, a great book for your collection.
As much as If you would like a chance to win the book leave a comment here telling what quilt pattern you hope is included in the book…(like O is for Ocean Waves).
I’ll be back later today to answer my garden questions and to tell you the winner of last week’s Try it on Tuesday.
