Tigers and Sails and ABC Tales by Virginia Museum Of Fine Arts

This heart warming children's book blends the foundations of language and master-works from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts into a lovely journey that both parent and child will enjoy. Twenty-six works from the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Mellon accompany delightful prose that unites the alphabet and art in bold color. As the first ABC book published by the VMFA, it surely will be the quintessential gift for children for years to come.
