ALASKA ABC BOOK
The updated 40th anniversary edition of this best-selling ABC book celebrates Alaskan culture, with all-new colorful and imaginative artwork.
This playful and humorous alphabet book inspires learning the ABCs and introduces young children to Alaskan flora, fauna, and culture. Meet a moose in mukluks, a reindeer in the rain, and salmon snowshoeing! A glossary at the end defines words introduced in the text that may not seem familiar but are common in Alaskan culture, like qiviut--the wooly undercoat of a muskox--and umiak--a boat made from animal skin stretched over a wooden frame.
