BEST OF THE YEAR
The New York Times - Booklist Top of the List - World Kid Lit

What letter does the word bee start with?
If you said "B" you're right - in English!
But in many, many languages, it actually starts with A.
Bee is Aṅụ̄ in Igbo,
Aamoo in Ojibwe,
Abelha in Portugese.
And Arı in Turkish.

Come and explore the gorgeous variations in the ways we talk about familiar things, unified and illuminated through Ellen Heck's eye-catching, graphic scratchboard details and hidden letterforms.
