From the top of Alaska to the tip of Mexico, the Pacific Coast of North America comes to life in this vividly illustrated alphabet book. From albatrosses and orcas to Zodiac boats, children can identify objects that start with each letter and read along with the lilting text. In addition, each illustration has the featured letter hidden within the colorful artwork, creating a challenge for older readers, too. Featuring forests full of fairies, singing seashells, and persnickety pirates, this is an alphabet adventure for the young and young at heart.

In 2004, A Pacific Alphabet was given to all kindergarten students in British Columbia by the Ministry of Education
