An Alphabet by Molly Brett

An Alphabet by Molly Brett
Molly Brett ~ Medici Society, 1980


It's Memorial Day here in the U.S., meaning it's time for solemn celebration, the summer is here at last, and for those of us still in it, there's no school. My son has exactly three days left of first grade, so I'm sure the last thing he needs to do is bone up on his ABCs.

However, that doesn't mean some other sweet child out there isn't looking to learn. A myriad of nature words for every letter in the alphabet, nothing is quite as adorable as Molly's forest creatures, especially her hedgehogs!

In a matter of days, I'll be a full-time mom again for the summer. I'll still be hanging around, but I hope you'll forgive me if a miss a day or two here and there. In the meantime, thoughts of peace and hope to all the families who've lost a loved one while in service to this great country of ours.

I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends. ~ Abraham Lincoln

(hi, I commented about his book on your instagram feed. I follow you because I also love and collect vintage kids' books)

Sometimes I feel like the only person in the world who knows about Molly Brett. I have 14 of her books, but not this one, yet! All of those Medici Society books are really wonderful and remain my number one most sought items while thrifting.

I have not heard of this book, though the illustrations somehow strike me as known... I LOVE THIS!! I cannot believe I have NONE of her work. MUST... Adorable, education, and just plain nature-loveliness... Thanks for sharing this... Needed a big of happy to brighten up my day, and this was a great start.
