Subtitled-A Shaker Abecedarius-meaning a mnemonic device for teaching the alphabet, i.e. the ABCs. (Notice in the lines below that the first letter in each line advances the alphabet as the poem works its way from 'A' to 'Z.')

Alligator, beetle, porcupine, whale,
Bobolink, panther, dragonfly, snail,
Crocodile, monkey, buffalo, hare,
Dromedary, leopard, mud turtle, bear,
Elephant, badger, pelican, ox,
Flying fish, reindeer, anaconda, fox,
...

In the last line, above, the initial 'A' in 'a____naconda' wants to be stretched in order to keep the poem's cadence. That is the part where, when reading aloud, you trace your child's finger along the length of the most even-tempered anaconda that any five Shakers ever absently held at waist high. And, I suggest, do not neglect to tap the fox by way of putting a period on the sentence. (Try it in the air without ever having seen the book--it works just as well.) The bemused and becalmed illustrations look like period pieces, but they are not. An editor's and illustrator's labor of love and a good book to read to your child both before and after he or she is born.

[Other they-don't-make-'em-like-they-used-to suggestions are: the one volume editions of the Golden Encyclopedia and the Golden Bible (circa 1949), and an in-and-out-of-print title, The Little Lame Prince and The Adventures Of A Brownie by Dinah Maria Mulock Craik (1826-1887) with illustrations by Edwin.J. Prittie. (The ONLY edition to get is The John C. Winston Company Edition of 1928.)

Thanks largely to their illustrations, all of these titles, especially the last, will re-create for you and your child the lost-in-time reading experience of a bygone era. Great gifts.]

A Classic for the Ages
The playful verses are a delight to read. The history of the book adds depth to the content. I had this book when I was growing up.

Rated 4 stars for overall condition and low price. Subtracted the 5th star because an unremovable library sticker was stuck over part of the title - not shown in picture on site- which really disappointed me.

This book came in just as described and in a timely manner. Thank you

I grew up with this book, and have now passed it on to my niece and nephew as well. The rhyming and beautiful pictures are perfect for little kids :)

This book is a classic work of the Provensens. Although I am unfamiliar with the reason for the choice of included words (not always alphabetical, not always relevant), the now out of print picture book is beautifully illustrated by Richard Meran Barsan, a pleasure for the eyes, and a fun book for those 4,5,or 6 years old.

What is an abecedarius? I looked it up on wikipedia: "An abecedarius is an acrostic in which the first letter of every word, strophe or verse follows the order of the alphabet."

Intricate illustrations make this book a delight to read. What a fun way to help reinforce the alphabet! I think that when children come up with questions, they engage with material and make space for knowledge. This book is intriguing and is sure to generate questions. Perhaps I am unworldy, but there are animals in this book I haven't heard of before (ichneumon, angleworm, auk, bobolink). I think this adds to the charm! Also, this book includes animals that most modern books don't seem to: polliwog, whippoorwill, wolverine. Children will enjoy learning about these animals, perhaps with a quick google search!

I enjoyed the art of of Alice and Marin Provensen in A Visit to William Blake's Inn. I enjoy it again here!
Delicate and detailed illustrations with old fashioned looking pictures this book is based on a traditional Shaker abc rhyme of animal names. The illustrations are playful and you can tell the artists had fun illustrating this book. The book introduces unusual animals names like xanthos, ocelot, angleworm and ichneumon. Fun book to share with your children.
