What is better than a beautifully illustrated alphabet book? A beautifully illustrated alphabet book that also introduces the child to scripture and Biblical concepts as this review product does. T is for Tree: A Bible ABC is a beautiful hardcover book by Reformed Free Publishing Association. My son was so excited to get it in the mail and immediately started flipping through the pages and looking at the pictures (he is four years old and not yet reading).
As I looked through the book before reading it with my son I was drawn to the beautiful illustrations. They were colorful, warm tones that were very pleasing to the eye. In addition to the beautiful primary illustrations each page included a cute border such as ants, snowflakes, or feathers. As I read it I loved that in addition to a poem for each letter there was a scripture verse from the King James (Authorized) Version of the Bible that was chosen based on the word for that letter.
My favorite letter was Q is for quails. Something about the colors jus treally struck me as gorgeous and that story is always a great reminder of how God provides for us in all things at all times. My four year old however thought that the very first one A is for Ants was the best. He really enjoys watching ants and other insects outside so I think that may be why he was partial to that page. He enjoyed the poem, ” Though weak and small in size, They gather food all summer. May God make us as wise. ” Proverbs 30:24-25 was accompanying scripture verse.
In order to make the poems rhyme there was some syntax that may be a little difficult for young children to understand. However, all in all I thought this was a beautiful book that both my son and I enjoyed reading several times. It is a nice quality hardcover with sturdy pages. The pages have held up well even under the sometimes overzealous attention of my four year old.
It would make a great gift for a young child. It is a book that can be used in multiple ways: as a picture book for children to enjoy on their own, a read aloud for small children, a teaching aid for children learning the alphabet, or as a guide for various memory verses with older children. I plan to use our copy to continue working with my son as he learns the alphabet next year.
