*I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway, but that fact is not affecting my honest review*

I received this book free from GoodReads First Reads Giveaway. I read it to a 2 1/2 year old. I liked that it was something different from " A is for Apple, B is for Ball, C is for Cat." I also appreciated that the author gave the proper Latin names for things, even if I sometimes butchered the pronunciation. The drawings were nice, but color might have been a better choice to catch a youngsters' eye.

The illustrations are beautifully done. I think it is wonderful that plants, animals and beautiful works of the Earth are showcased bringing the West (from British Columbia to Baja, California) alive.
