O Is for Orca: An Alphabet Book
Authors:
Andrea Helman
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian;
Grade Levels: Preschool; Kindergarten; 1; 2;

Art Wolfe's stunning color wildlife and nature photographs teach young children the alphabet while giving them a sense of wonder and appreciation about the bounty of nature. The old-fashioned A is for Apple is replaced by A is for Auklet. F is for Fir Tree, H is for Haida Totem Pole, and so on through the alphabet. No one does nature better than Art Wolfe, acclaimed longtime contributor to National Geographic. Andrea Helman's brief text includes an accessible introduction or fact about the animal, plant, person, or object depicted.

Published in the United States so improper terminolgy for example: H is for Haida Totem Pole instead of the Canadian text which would be H is for Haida Gwaii Totem Pole.
