We just received a fabulous new kids picture book: If Rocks Could Sing: A Discovered Alphabet, by Leslie McGuirk, published by Tricycle Press. Over many years, on a stretch of Florida seashore, McGuirk has found rocks in the shape of each letter of the alphabet, as well as in the shape of a variety of objects. Now she has put them together in this delightful book. As a child, McGuirk wanted to be a game warden. Fortunately, for us, she grew up to be an author and illustrator, whose favorite topics are animals and the natural world. Here's a little video clip that will give you a good sense of this great new book.
