Description
Inspired by the lives of British loyalists who emigrated to Canada after the American Revolution, this picture book for readers 4 to 7 takes the form of an alphabet primer, illustrated with realistic paintings and scenic borders filled with period details and try-and-name items that begin with the appropriate letter. A, for example, is for Abigail and Anna, Zebediah's two sisters. He is making them an alphabet book. B stands for bandalore, a forerunner of the yoyo, H is for the hornbook that taught children to spell, U is for the uniform that Papa wore when he defended the king, and, as you've probably guessed, Z is for the "author," Zebediah.

"An expanded glossary at the end provides more information about each area. The illustrations, done in acrylic on canvas and framed by attractive borders featuring scenes from the landscape on top and household objects on the sides, use muted tones and have a nostalgic feel appropriate to time and place."School Library Journal
