Marcia Perry's vibrant, engaging paintings portray a host of Earth's amazing animals. For each letter of the alphabet, Perry provides a picture profiling a collection of creatures whose names begin with that letter, accompanied by dreamy, rolling text starting with the same letter. Here on Earth: An Animal Alphabet – besides offering a visual feast and a valuable tool for expanding a child's vocabulary – poignantly expresses that Earth is home to all sorts of wild and wonderful beings, all distinctly extraordinary, and all in need of our respect and protection.
