By Krystina Castella and Brian Boyl

If you stand in just the right place, at just the right time, you are going to see some pretty amazing things. Like the three tall branches leaning against one another, creating the letter A. Or the spines of a cactus forming the letter F. And it looks like that bent, twisting tree trunk makes the bars of the letter K with that straight trunk in the foreground.

Discovering Nature’s Alphabet is more than an ABC book: it’s a hiking game and alphabet hunt. Full of beautiful photos and practiced imagination, these pages take readers outdoors to let them see nature in a new light. The shapes of the alphabet are everywhere if you look hard enough; not just in the branches or vines, but in the cracks between rocks, the spaces between mountain cliffs, and the accidental clumping of a couple bits of seaweed.
