Product description


The Alphabet Tree, by Leo Lionni, is tops on the list of picture books that teach as well as amuse." —Time

“Handsomely illustrated . . . an amusing and informative word game." —The Chicago Sun-Times

From the Inside Flap

The wordbug teaches the letters on the alphabet tree, torn and tossed by a windstorm, how to become stronger by banding together to form words. Then a clever purple caterpillar teaches the letters to become even stronger by forming sentences with a message of peace. Available in hardcover for the first time in many years, The Alphabet Tree is Leo Lionni’s gentle parable about the power of the written word in a democratic society.
