Good Things Comes to Those Who Wait

Learning the alphabet has never been this beautiful. On each page, find images that reflect the familiar or open doorways into the world beyond. Each letter is a stand-alone piece of art, and the collection is a fascinating journey to distant lands and shared secrets with new friends.

Children need to see themselves inside their books and art. They should also find their friends and neighbors in those same places. The presence of diversity should be woven into the fabric in which we swaddle our children so that a sense of belonging and community follows.

The Ladybug Version has ladybugs on each page.  Have fun learning the alphabet and also searching for little ladybugs.  Some are harder to find than others.

Where I Started

Almost two decades have gone into lovingly crafting these alphabet letters. I almost died during the birth of my son in 2000. Knowing we wanted a sibling for him and another little one for ourselves also, we decided to adopt. At that time, I was decorating my son’s nursery and buying children’s books. In the back of my mind was our future child, the one we wouldn’t find for another five years. Drawn to vintage alphabets because they hold so much beauty and whimsy, I quickly realized that although my blonde son could undoubtedly find his likeness in these alphabets, our future child might not.

I think children need to see themselves inside their books and art. They should also find their friends and neighbors in those same places.  I hope that every child will identify with letters in this book and that a sense of belonging and community follows.  MR
