A charming and engaging tour of Australia, using bright and fun typography

Every picture is made with the letters that spell its name! This tour of Australia is unlike any other. Readers spell their way through the pictures of landmarks and animals of Australia, via illustrations created entirely with letters. This is a unique graphic device. Letter Art encourages letter recognition, observation, and spelling, and helps associate words with the pictures they describe. Colors are bold and bright, and the book is supported by Teachers' Notes via the back page and online.
