A book that not only gives a child more than just one unique word for each letter of the alphabet, but also gives a sweetly uplifting message. The illustrations are absolutely perfect for the book and each message is important, but written in a way that speaks to both the parent and the child. We've been giving this book to many of our friends with children/grandchildren and so far everyone loves it!

Alphabet of the Heart
I LOVE this ABC book, as does my 2 year old son! It's far more than your average ABC book though; it teaches one of life's valuable morals on each page, coupled with fantastic illustrations makes for excellent conversation with your child. It's a wonderful learning tool. I've been reading it with my son every (well almost every) night since he was 18 months and he's known the alphabet on sight since he was around 22 months from this book! I highly recommend it- no alphabet book can touch this one!

This is an excellent and unique children's book. It takes alphabet learning to a new level by incorporating positive values that we try hard to teach our little ones. The illustrations capture your attention and the words behind them keep you turning the page for more. I strongly recommend this book to all parents. Reading ABC in Harmony is the perfect way to begin or close a day; it warms you from head to toes!

My Nieces Love This Book
I wish I had this alphabet book when my kids were little! The author gently flows through the ABC's with illustrations that keep the little audience captive and words that inspire thought and emotion. I get to share this book with my nieces now and they love hearing it over and over again. It has opened up some wonderful conversations about life and about the special little people they are!

ABC's of Life and Love
I came across a copy of this book while at the B.C. Children's Hospital. How wonderful for the children in this hospital to have the opportunity to read this heart-warming book. Every hospital that has a children's ward should have this book! This is by far the best ABC book ever written, a must have for every child. I highly recommend this book for all children in all settings. Its points of positive reinforcements while reading each letter's story is a delight. This is one book you will read over and over again. It is the perfect gift for a child. The illustrations are colorful and as each letter's story unfolds teaching life's lessons in such a positive caring manner you want to keep turning the pages. The author's talent for writing and caring nature shines through in these uplifting and thought provoking verses and I look forward to her next book.
