This is an interesting book! From the title I thought it would be all about sealife but it focuses on lots of natural and not so natural features of the Pacific Northwest. It is a good book with some beautiful pictures. However it's a slightly hard as a kid picture book. Lots of very long complex and unnecessary descriptive terms and whilst the photos are beautiful, they are not always easy to relate to the words.

Great alphabet book. Good for literacy and science. Book talk in science. Good for local northwest.

I love that there is a Pacific Northwest Alphabet book. Growing up all over the northwest it made me happy to know that it's beauty is being appreciated.

I’ve long been a fan of Art Wolfe’s nature photographs so was delighted to find examples of his work in an ABC book.
