The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Is for Awesome is an alphabet book with an edge. Bursting with colour, energy and life, each spread offers a rhythmic phrase and an abundance of artwork illustrating the featured letter. The message of dreaming big and living life to its fullest permeates every page, inviting readers to “learn some new letters that you can use to make magical words and share big ideas". Little children will love pouring over the illustrations and naming what they can see, and coming up with their own rhymes and words. Dallas Clayton’s trademark illustrations are retro and quirky – the book is a gorgeous, uplifting gift for children and adults alike and makes for an Awesome (mini) coffee table book!


A is for Awesome by Dallas Clayton

H is for HAPPY to see you today
I is IMAGINE IDEAS all your own
P is for PASSION pursuing what’s right

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
