My Travel Alphabet is a vibrant ABC Book written to inspire the next generation of travelers. Filled with stunning illustrations and clever rhymes, this book is bound to spark curiosity and discussion about the spectacular world we live in. Magical as they may seem, each of the 26 scenes is 100% real and includes location notes for the grown-up globetrotter and soon-to-be explorer.
From cities painted blue to mountains made of rainbows, My Travel Alphabet will inspire wonder and wanderlust in parents and children alike.
My Travel Alphabet was such a great project to work on. The challenge that I had was to balance the realism of each location, since they are real places on Earth, but also make them magical enough to inspire young children and interest them in the world around them. In the end, we succeeded in having a book that is beautiful and inspiring all around!
