A Beauty Collected
A Captivating ABC Book to Discover the Beauty Around You
This is truly the most extraordinary ABC learning book I have EVER seen. Exquisite vibrant photographs grace each page. I love how author, Rachel Garahan, uses multiple, not so common, words for each letter of the alphabet. Look at the pictures below. Garahan does not use C for Cat. She uses lots of C words like Carrots and Chard… and three other words for the letter C. Unbelievably gorgeous and educational. The simple carrot is not so simple. Garahan goes so far as to feature several varieties of carrots in the picture. Kids need to know there are carrots other than the “baby carrots” they get in their lunch bag. This is how to ABC if you want well-educated children. Brilliant.
Adventure, treasure-hunt, discover, enjoy. The world comes alive with A Beauty Collected, a picture book filled with a lush alphabet of artful photography and dreamy narrative. By featuring items that can be found in one’s own neighborhood (pinecones, flowers, herbs) combined with more exotic items (raw turquoise nuggets, tentacles, rambutan), the imagery in A Beauty Collected is designed to be accessible and to expand the mind beyond the backyard. Whether the item is a porcupine quill or a vanilla pod, the goal is to encourage inquisitiveness: What is this item? What purpose does it serve? What does it smell or taste like? Where can I find it? By establishing familiarity with nature, A Beauty Collected creates a generation of people who are sensitive to the earth they live on.
